Ranking Member Lofgren Applauds Biden Administration National Strategy to Address GHGs

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - Yesterday, the Biden-Harris Administration announced a National Strategy to strengthen U.S. greenhouse gas measurement and monitoring capabilities. Among other efforts, the Strategy leverages the capabilities of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and directs them to lead a U.S. Greenhouse Gas Center.

“The Biden-Harris Administration’s release of a national strategy to quantify and monitor greenhouse gas emissions is the type of commonsense whole-of-government climate solution we need to reach our emission reduction goals,” said Ranking Member Zoe Lofgren. “Simply put, if we don’t have accurate emissions data, we can’t effectively cut emissions—this strategy will help to close those data gaps. DOE, EPA, NASA, NIST, and NOAA have been at the forefront of measuring and tracking emissions for years. This strategy represents just one of many ways in which we can leverage and build upon the cutting-edge technologies and capabilities our premiere science agencies offer to act on the climate crisis. I look forward to working with the Administration and the agencies involved in this strategy and other important climate work as we progress with a coordinated climate solution.”
