Sarbanes Statement on the 2014 National Climate Assessment
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) today released the following statement on the 2014 National Climate Assessment – the most comprehensive scientific assessment of climate change and its impacts on America:
“The National Climate Assessment presents a sobering account of the impact climate change is having on the health of our citizens, our environment and our economy. Maryland sits in the middle of a high-density coastal corridor and has over 7,000 miles of coastline. In short, Marylanders cannot afford to ignore sea-level rise and other devastating consequences of climate change.
“We cannot allow polluters and corporate special interests to dictate our energy policy and jeopardize the health of our environment. We must pursue constructive solutions that are rooted in science and make our country stronger and safer.”
