      U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science and Technology
      Hearing: May 3, 2007

      Re: U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CSSP) Strategic Plan

      James R. Mahoney*

      The CCSP activities initiated in 2002, including the 10-Year Strategic Plan for CCSP published in July 2003, have provided a highly useful framework for all CCSP studies.

      Michael C. MacCracken**

      the Strategic Plan did not even call for a comprehensive decision support program, which is both very disappointing and a real disservice to those who are experiencing climate change now and who will be exposed to much greater change in years to come. The Administration is not even providing sufficient support to investigate the uncertainties that it claims are important, much less the many areas deemed important by the national and international scientific community and the public, just at a time when the pace of climate change and its impacts are accelerating.
