Entry Title Date
Climate Change February 25, 2015
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"News this week from New York City was that an advisory panel of scientists, engineers, and risk management experts just reported that the sea level rise along that city’s shoreline—approximately 12 inches since 1900—may have expanded Superstorm Sandy‘s flood area by as much as 25 square miles, flooding the homes of some 80,000 people. That is pretty real."
Recognizing Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins February 13, 2015
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"On behalf of our entire community, I extend my deepest condolences to his beloved wife Sandy, who was always at his side, and to his daughters and grandchildren. Our citizenry has been blessed to know him, to work with him and for his service to us. May God bless him and bring him peaceful rest."
Congratulating Karl Kildow February 12, 2015
David Valadao, R-CA
"After college, Mr. Kildow dedicated his life to the noble profession of teaching. His first teaching job was at Needles High School in Needles, California. While there, he taught English, mathematics, history, and physical education and coached the school’s basketball team. In addition launching his career as an educator in Needles, he also met his wife Sandy there."
Keystone Xl Pipeline Approval Act February 11, 2015
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"I have to say, Madam Speaker, when I go home to New Jersey, and my district was probably more impacted by Superstorm Sandy than any other district, I don’t see any disagreement between Democrats and Republicans in my district. It doesn’t matter whether they are State legislators or county legislators or mayors or on the council. And I have almost as many Republican mayors and councilmen and councilwomen as I do Democrats, but all of them agree that climate change is real and caused by human activity because they are listening to the scientists and they understand that science is important and that we should pay attention to it."
Climate Change February 10, 2015
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"Superstorm Sandy caused tens of billions of dollars in damage, including terrible losses in my home State of Rhode Island. Across New England, Sandy destroyed thousands of homes, left millions without electric service, and caused more than 100 deaths across nine States. Of course, we cannot say this one devastating storm was specifically caused by climate change, but we do know that carbon pollution loads the dice for more and more severe extreme weather such as Sandy."
