Democrats Turn DHS Confirmation Hearing Into Hotcoldwetdry Lecture

It’s amusing how people who use vast amounts of fossil fuels, often on the taxpayer dime, like to jam ‘climate change’ into everything, while at the same time ignoring actual threats

(Washington Examiner) Two Democratic senators questioned President Trump’s nominee for Department of Homeland Security secretary about the cause of climate change during a Wednesday hearing that otherwise focused on her credentials and views on national security.

Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware, asked Kirstjen Nielsen, the current White House principal deputy chief of staff, if human activity was to blame for global warming — despite other senators’ focusing on cybersecurity and defense-related issues.

“I do absolutely believe that the climate is changing. I can’t unequivocally state it’s only caused by humans,” Nielsen said.

“That’s not my question,” Carper interjected.

“There are many — there many contributions,” Nielsen replied before Carper interrupted again.

“My question was do you believe that it’s primarily caused by human beings?” he asked.

“I believe that climate change exists, I’m not prepared to determine causation,” she responded.

“Really? Why not?” Carper asked. “Ninety-eight percent of our scientists say this is a problem. For you to sit there and say ‘well, it’s not really clear’ — something’s happening here and I think it is clear.”

Sen. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire later picked this up, and decided that “99 percent of the world’s scientists agree that the primary cause of climate change is human activity…”. I guess the utterly debunked 97% number just wasn’t good enough for them. These people are silly, and un-scientific.

    Reasonable people the world over understand that global warming impacts all of society and its functions. Only the US 23 percenters think otherwise. Only the US 23 percenters think global warming is a communist hoax sponsored by China and Russia.

    But… the US 23 percenters are in charge.

    What people “think” about a scientific matter is irrelevant. Its not a show of hands. Obviously
