Representatives Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Bobby Rush (D-IL) sent a letter to House Energy and Commerce Chair Fred Upton (R-MI) and Subcommittee on Energy and Power Chair Ed Whitfield (R-KY) December 11 requesting that the committee hold a hearing on a recent PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP report finding that companies should prepare for global temperatures to increase 6oC by the end of the century. The November 5 report, Too Late for Two Degrees? Low Carbon Economy Index 2012, concludes that carbon intensity must decrease by 5.1 percent per year for the next 39 years to limit climate change to the international goal of 2oC, a reduction rate that has never been achieved.
