Democrats To Hold Hearing On ‘Climate Change’ While Using Lots Of Fossil Fuels

They do realize that the building the are holding the hearing in gets most of its power from coal, right? And that most of the Democrats will and the people who are “testifying” will arrive in fossil fueled vehicles, right?

With The Planet In Crisis, Congress Is Here To Talk About Climate Change

The playing field is now different, with Democrats having won back control of the U.S. House in November. And over the next two weeks, climate change will be front and center on Capitol Hill.

Three House committees have dedicated their first hearings of the new Congress to this issue.

On Wednesday morning, a subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing on the environmental and economic effects of global climate change. It will be the committee’s first hearing on the climate in six years.

“We are committed to combating climate change and standing up for those left to suffer in its wake,” Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.), the committee’s chairman, said in a joint statement with subcommittee chairman Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.). “This will be the first of many hearings on this growing global crisis.”

Simultaneously, the House Committee on Natural Resources will kick off a full month of climate-related hearings by examining how climate change is affecting communities around the country.

“What we have not seen from this committee for a decade plus is attention to climate change,” Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) said in a video posted to the committee’s Twitter page this week. “We’ve seen a pattern of denial, particularly the last two years with the Trump administration. Now we’re at a point, with this new majority that that is going to change.”

How did Pallone, Grijalva, and Tonko get to Washington?

(WLOS) North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper is speaking to members of Congress to urge the federal government to take action on curbing greenhouse emissions and prepare for the effects of climate change.

Cooper planned to testify Wednesday before the House Committee on Natural Resources on Capitol Hill. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and other climate change researchers and activists also were slated to speak.

That’s right, he’s taking a long fossil fueled trip, along with Baker. Anyone think they’re flying commercial?

The first piece spent a lot of time whining about a hearing held by Lamar Smith (R-Tx) back in 2017, but, that one included all sides. This one by Democrats appears to only involve members of the Cult of Climastrology. They seem afraid to debate.

The only crisis is the one they’re making up, meant to institute bigger and bigger government, along with taxes and fees.

    The playing field is different, but the score’s not gonna change. I’m not sure if they understand how this whole House, Senate, and President thing works.

    The democrats can start living a zero carbon emissions lifestyle and set an example for the rest of us, and surely with half of the population doing that it would leave some kind of measurables for us to see. Or, maybe it’s really not important enough for democrats to change their lifestyle for, thus proving climate change and democrats are full of shit.
