Audio of Tomorrow's Senate Hearing

Tomorrow the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (Chairman: James Inhofe, R-OK) Barbara Boxer (D-CA)) has a hearing entitled, “Update on the Latest Climate Change Science and Local Adaptation Measures.”

It's doesn't look to be Webcast It will be Webcast at http://www.epw.senate.gov, and it looks like CSPAN will have the audio here, starting at 10 am ET.

Update: At 10 am ET tomorrow, there will be a copy of James McCarthy's testimony here. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists "he will explain that the ocean has absorbed more than 90 percent of the heat trapped over the past century by greenhouse gasses that have accumulated in the atmosphere, and that this heat is now penetrating deep into the ocean. According to McCarthy, this pattern cannot be explained by short-term natural cycles; it is a clear signature of climate change. He also will explain how what happens in the ocean affects the climate on land, including seasonal patterns of extreme weather events."
