Senate Climate Change Clearinghouse
The dangers of climate change are clear. The costs to the United States are real. And the need for action from the public, businesses and government is urgent. Senator Edward J. Markey (D-MA) serves as a chair of the U.S. Senate Climate Change Clearinghouse along with co-chairs Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) which is a regular forum where members of the Senate meet to discuss the latest climate change science, recent innovations in clean energy technology, and actions that can be taken to reduce carbon pollution. Senator Markey is also Chairman of a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee with jurisdiction over international climate negotiations.
The Climate Change Clearinghouse, formed in 2013, provides a forum to keep Senators and their staff up-to-date on the latest developments in climate science, climate and clean energy policy at all levels of government, and the latest approaches businesses, communities, and other stakeholders are taking to deal with the challenges of climate change.
