Grassley In Budget Committee Meeting About Climate Change, Former Gov. Branstad Testify

Washington, DC — When Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley sat down for a budget committee hearing Wednesday, a familiar person was on the witness list to testify.

Former Iowa Governor and former US Ambassador to China, Terry Branstad, offered his perspective on climate change.

Grassley says Chinese industry is continuing to ignore the warnings from scientists about the looming ramifications of polluting the environment.

Grassley, a Republican, notes there are many large and populous nations around the globe who are contributing to the specter of climate change, and action is needed.

While China is in the process of putting policies in place that would mitigate some of the impact of climate change, including a focus on ending the use of coal, Grassley says it’s too little, too late.
