House Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Energy and Power Subcommittee Ranking Member Bobby Rush (D-IL) sent a letter to their Republican counterparts October 21, urging the committee to hold a hearing on the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. The September 27 report concluded with 95 percent certainty that climate change is anthropogenic. The members said the committee, which had a hearing in September with Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy, should continue to address the issue of climate change.
