Republican Global-Warming Deniers Dump Climate Panel
December 1, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)— Republicans beholden to Big Oil and giant corporations that pollute our air and water with poisons carbon emissions, as a group deny the very existence of man-made global warming. So, it comes as no surprise that House Republicans poised to take over the majority have decided to eliminate the global warming committee.
The Politico writes:
“House Republicans will scrap the committee set up by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to investigate global warming, the panel’s top Republican announced Wednesday.”
“Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) made official what many had already expected — the GOP majority will axe the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, which Pelosi created in 2007.”
Meanwhile, another group of GOP global warming deniers are vying to head the House energy committee, in which Henry Waxman (D-CA) worked to pass climate change legislation that went to the senate to die.
The new gang, who reject science, will spend their time enacting sweetheart deals for their Big Oil donors that will make our planet dirtier, sicker and on a collision course with global warming catastrophes.
