Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. App. Section 10, the Federal Advisory Committee Act ("FACA"), and toward producing a "National Assessment on Climate Change" ("Assessment"), Defendants have chartered, and on more than one occasion renewed the charter for, a "National Assessment on Climate Change Synthesis Team" as a Federal Advisory Committee, at the request of the National Science and Technology Council ("NSTC"), the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources ("CENR") and the Office of Science and Technology Policy. By so doing Defendants thereby acknowledged that FACA governs their proceedings and subjected the process to such applicable rules as set forth in the statute.
