On February 25, the co-chairs of the recently formed Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change called on 69 inspectors general from federal agencies, departments and commissions to compile a list of actions that could be taken to combat the effects of global climate change. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) asked the inspectors general to help “in assessing whether government entities are doing all they can to confront this threat” and to provide that information by March 29.
