- On the occasion of the Commerce Department's Proposal to Establish a NOAA Climate Service -

Statement of Eileen Claussen
President, Pew Center on Global Climate Change

February 8, 2010

It is clear that impacts from climate change are already being experienced across the United States and that our ability to manage and adapt to these changes will benefit from  a  comprehensive, coordinated Climate Service.  The creation of a central clearinghouse in NOAA will help answer this critical and growing need for trusted information and resources.
