House Environmental Committee Holds Info Meeting With DEP On Wolf Climate Change Initiatives Sept. 19

The House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee is scheduled to hold an information meeting September 19 with DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell on “the Administration’s position and progress regarding climate change initiatives.”
In March, the Committee held an informational meeting on debunking modern myths surrounding climate change where the only presenter at the meeting said 140 million years of data on carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere shows the “planet’s CO2 [carbon dioxide] levels have been in a significant and dangerous decline falling from 2,500 ppm” to about 412 ppm today, up from 280 ppm at the beginning of the industrial revolution.
Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler), Majority Chair of the Committee, said at the end of the March meeting "People use that [climate denier term] directed at me also.  There are four seasons a year here in Pennsylvania, we get regular climate changes. I don't think there is any way to deny there are changes."
The meeting will be held in Room G-50 Irvis Building starting at 10:00.  Committee meetings are usually webcast live online.
