Democrats Held ‘Climate Change’ Hearings, It Forgot To Include Science

House Democrats Held The First Climate Change Hearings In Six Years. It Was A Mess

Top House Democrats finally got their wish to hold the first hearings on global warming in six years Wednesday, but both committee hearings meandered into discussions of civil rights, race and apocalyptic warnings without much talk about science.

The House Committee on Natural Resources hearing started off with testimony from Govs. Roy Cooper of North Carolina, a Democrat, and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, a Republican — both of whom support liberal climate policies.

During that time, Utah Rep. Rob Bishop questioned whether or not the climate hearing broke committee rules. Bishop, the committee’s ranking Republican, also wondered why the committee held a hearing on an issue outside its jurisdiction.

“Are these hearings simply for those of us around the horseshoe who are going to make legislation, or are these hearings designed for that group sitting at a table in the corner so they can write cute stories?” Bishop asked, pointing to where reporters sat in the hearing room.

The committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona, responded that global warming “significance and consequences over all our jurisdictions.”

In other words, this whole thing is about pushing far left politics.

“Climate change is a civil rights issue,” Reverend Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, told lawmakers on the committee on Wednesday morning. Lennox also referred to tackling global warming as the “lunch counter moment for the 21st century.”

If it’s a lunch counter moment, why do so few Warmists, especially the ones showing up at hearings, not making substantive changes in their own lives?

Make sure to read the rest for continued Warmist wackadoodle. Almost makes Scientologists seem rational.

    When they say stuff like “Climate change is a civil rights issue” they show they are serious politicians trying to fool us about climate with an agenda of subterfuge and lies. It’s not about climate (as we all keep saying) it’s about power, money, leftist greed and control of other people. IOW, it’s anti Freedom and anti American. The Democrat party is a party of traitors, communists and liars. What happened to them? When did they stop being liberals and start being leftist shills for Americas enemies? It’s the sacking of Rome all over again.

    No cars, no planes, no farting cows. The future brought to us by the Democratic-Communist Party. We’ll celebrate like it’s 1650 all over again. They have created the Ultimate Abortion: All Mankind. Success at last!

    Just think we get to replace EVERY building in America or at least REMODEL THEM because they are not energy efficient.

    That should cost about 500 trillion. But why? I mean seriously why do all that when there is no energy to leak out of the buildings. I mean We will have to build a trillion windmills taking over all the farm land so even though we got energy no one will be alive because their is no food.

    STUPID brought to you by the communist left. It would be funny if they weren’t deadly serious about raping America and then infanticiding us.

    Part of the green new deal would be getting rid of airplanes. Just when you think the doomers can’t get anymore ridiculous, they of course do. But as I saw elsewhere, it actually makes sense to them, because getting rid of airplanes wouldn’t hurt their new constituents, illegal immigrants

    And as if Occasional-Cotex isn’t crazy enough now the Dems have Fairfax(D-C, VA). Remember when all the D-C’s were screeching “believe all women”? I guess that’ll go down the leftist memory hole along with the oncoming ice age. But still “People will Die”!

    There are no more Democrats. I know, I was once a Democrat. My father and mother were Democrats. I left during the Willie Horton debacle. My parents left even before me. That party no longer exists and anyone still in it are either blind, blathering idiots or communists.

    Certainly sounded more balanced than any GOP led hearing…

    for example,

    Dr. Judith Curry, a skeptic climate scientist, testified – offering her minority view of global warming:

    Climatologist Judith Curry, one of two scientists invited to testify, cautioned against alarmism. Curry pointed out that while there are some sensible climate policies, there’s still much we don’t understand about the climate system.

    “We need to avoid the hubris of thinking that we can predict what the future climate will do and that we can actually control the climate,” Curry said during the hearing.

    and this:

    Derrick Hollie, president of Reaching for America, argued that poor, minority communities could ill afford to eliminate fossil fuels, like Yearwood and Yeampierre championed.

    “We don’t have the luxury to pay more for green technologies. We need access to affordable energy to help heat our homes, power our stoves, and get back and forth to work,” Hollie said, speaking about the black community.

    And for a body responsible for legislation that could affect all Americans, it seems they are obligated to contemplate all viewpoints, including social impacts.
