The House Committee on Science and Technology yesterday passed a bill to establish a National Climate Service within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
In supporting the establishment of a National Climate Service, Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) said,
“In a climate that is changing, it is imperative that we have reliable information to help us adapt and respond to these changes.”
I must, albeit reluctantly, agree. Just look at what happens when there’s no government agency around to tell people that beach season is over.
