Rep.Darell Issa (R-Calif.) the incoming head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has pledged to hold hearings on the "Politicization of Science." which consists of re-hashing of the so called "Climate Gate" scandal in which hacked emails were cherry picked by climate change deniers- seeking evidence that global climate change is a hoax.
Though 97% of the worlds scientists agree- conservatives are convinced these scientists are all in cahoots attempting to pull off the worlds biggest practical joke....ever.
Thank heavens we have Daryll Issa and the Republican good guys on our side to bust those- uppity- smarty pants scientists.
Everyone knows scientists just think they are better than us....hiding in those laboratories all day doing god knows what.... They probably figured out a way to cause climate change anyway... if it was real- but it's not -(I'm just sayin)...just to get attention- because they're all nerds ya know.
The Republicans are back!. Praise Jesus!..... It's time for a witch hunt!
Yes...it's time for an
Representative John Shimkus of Illinois who is vying for chair of the House Energy Committee- says, "The earth will end only when god declares it's time to be over. Man will not destroy the earth." Clearly not a man of science he will find some stiff competition for that chair in the form of Joe Barton (R-TX) who believes climate change is "natural" and the solution-"get some shade." Smokey Joe Barton's most recent memorable stance on his concern for environmental issues was his apology to BP oil executive Tony Hayworth during hearings on the Gulf oil disaster. Smokey (named for his efforts on behalf of big polluters) Joe is known for referring to the EPA as "job killers." and stalled congressional efforts to decrease power plant emissions.
Big time-big polluting European firms have funded Tea Party climate deniers 80% - of campaign donations from major firms like BP and Bayer went to politians opposed to action on climate change like Jim DeMint and James Inohofe. And a New York Times poll revealed only 14% of Tea Party members believe warming is taking place as opposed to 49% of the rest of Americans..... Just ask Sarah.
