The House Energy & Commerce Committee’s Energy and Power Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Wednesday, September 18 at 10:00am. The hearing will examine the Obama administration’s climate change policies and activities. Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY), chairman of the subcommittee, sent a letter to members of the EPA, the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, the State Department and other agencies asking officials to testify at the hearing. Issues that will likely be covered include: EPA’s greenhouse gas limits for newly constructed power plants, the Keystone XL pipeline, renewable energy and energy efficiency standards and the administration’s revised calculation of the “social cost of carbon.” As of last week, only the Department of Defense responded to Rep. Whitfield’s request identifying a witness for the hearing.
