The U.S. Committee on Earth and Environmental Sciences
“What federal committee integrates responses to climate change amongst U.S agencies?”
The U.S. Global Change Research Act of 1990 launched federal action on climate change. One of the primary items was the establishment of The U.S. Committee on Earth and Environmental Sciences. This committee analyzes technical problems related to climate change and provides recommendations to federal agencies on how to plan for the future. This includes identifying research needs, understanding how to effectively use scientific applications, and strengthening international technical cooperation.
