Rep. Lieu defends climate change research
"Our sea levels have risen by over 6.7 inches in the last century, and they've accelerated in the last decade. And rising sea level affects not just democratic districts, it also affects republican districts. We can measure with precision that we've had over 20 years of the hottest records in terms of temperatures in recorded history having occured since 1980. We know that in 2012 over 19 states broke the hottest records in their states. And more extreme weather events, more weather uncertainty affects...all of America."
"I ask the American public to trust former Reagan Secretary of State George Schultz, trust President Bush, trust our United States Military who is saying climate change is a problem."
