Washington, D.C. January 8, 2013 - Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, released the following statement on today's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report which found that 2012 was the hottest year on record in the continental United States.

Senator Boxer said: "The facts speak for themselves -- whether it is NOAA's announcement today that 2012 was the hottest year on record or the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy, predictions of dangerous climate change impacts are coming true before our eyes. We need to focus now on what we must do to address climate change so that we can protect our people, local communities, and the nation's economy."
