RE; COMMITTEE ON CLIMATE CHANGE SCIENCE AND
TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION

Pursuant to the recommendation made at the February 4; 2002 cabinet-level Climate Change
Working Group and accepted by the President, I am pleased to infonn you of your membership
on the new Committee on Climate Change Science and Technology Integration. Its functions
include providing recommendations to the President concerning climate science and technology,
the movement of funding and programs across agency boundaries and coordination with OMB
on ihlplementing recommendations. Secretary Evans will initially chair the Committee, with
Secretary Abraham as the Vice Chair. Science Advisor Marburger will serve as the Executive
Director. The Committee will report periodically to the existing Climate Change Review Panel.
(Attachment).

An Interagency Working Group on Climate Change on Climate Science and Teclmology will
provide support to this effort and its work should commence immediately to ensure that planning
for the Fiscal Year 2004 budget reflects a base review of the existing federal science and
technology research programs. This review would culminate in the acceptance of related
recommendations by the Climate Change Review Panel later this year.

You should expect to hear from Secretary Evans shortly about next steps.

Attachment
