The committee hearings in the House are going to be propaganda in order to try to build a populous consensus around impeachment of the President. There will be every wacko agenda in the country brought to bear including "The Birthers." The rant will be louder than anything the 'real' legislators have to say.
The Climate Crisis is real. Very real. The climate temperatures alone are testament to that, but, yet the Right Wing Republicans and their Tea Baggers will seek to put the science community on trial all over again.
This Climate Crisis is unique to Earth's history by the sheer fact there have never been this many oxygen breathing and carbon dioxide expiration 'beings' alive before. There has never been this volume of carbon dioxide producing consumerism before. There has never been so much LOSS of forests before in the planet's history. There have been five known extinctions in Earth's past and four were due to ice ages. The one extinction that wiped out 97% of all life on Earth was a warming event. What do they actually believe they think is taking place? The extremists are in the USA House and they do not even believe the reality of their own lives. Amazing.
All this mess due to a Plutocracy that will not see their way to invest in the very country that bails them out over and over again. People are saying it is a lack of confidence. "W"rong. It is the reality that people with money, plenty of it, can make money with more income through manipulation of commodities and global currency than actually earning it through investment in small businesses.
An independent Science Assessment Panel investigated "Climategate" (as the Right Wing Media called it) and published their findings with language that stated this:
LONDON April 14, 2010
Panel Finds No Evidence of Deliberate Scientific Malpractice
(CBS) It's too soon to know whether it will quelch the debate over the existance of climate change but an inquiry has cleared climate researchers of malpractice in an affair that became popularly known as "climate-gate." ...
Published on 14 April 2010, Concluded ... "no evidence of any deliberate scientific malpractice in any of the work of the Climatic Research Unit....The CRU's work was "carried out with integrity" and had "fair and satisfactory" methods...found to be "objective and dispassionate...(with) no hint of tailoring results to a particular agenda."...(with) "their sole aim was to establish as robust a record of temperatures in recent centuries as possible.
Now the US House of Representatives is going to open a QUACK session and 'retry' the incident for the AMUSEMENT of their constituency. It is a complete waste of taxpayer's monies and there are more pressing issues before the Congress including job creation. The money that will be wasted in this House will be incredible and they are suppose to be fiscally responsible. Wow.
The facts will never be found as it would require subpoenas of scientists from around the world. Expensive doesn't even begin to define the cost and if not done correctly it will be nothing but biased and stupid. It will fill the records of Congress with lies and non-sense just so they can use the powers of their office to insure their next election. They should be ridiculed for even bring the topic and others to committee as a waste of monies and time of the people of the USA. It is an abuse of power and the nation should not stand for it. But, for the sake of 'fun' they'll do it anyway.
The scientific community was never quaking in fear in the first place and it won't be now.
Life after Climategate (click here)...Mann said scientists "can do our best to call out the disinformation where we see it." One example of this was how Mann reacted to a Climategate op-ed written by former GOP vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin for The Washington Post. He persuaded the Post to publish his own op-ed, responding to Palin's claims.
Mann praised the American Geophysical Union for providing resources to help set the record straight on climate science. He said journalists also should exercise their traditional role as a "critical and independent arbiter" of the policy debate, particularly in the midst of "politically motivated inquiries that we haven't seen in this country since the 1950s."...

I cannot condone some things that colleagues of mine wrote or requested in the e-mails recently stolen from a climate research unit at a British university. But the messages do not undermine the scientific case that human-caused climate change is real...
Global warming (click title to entry - thank you) threatens Antarctica and its tuxedoed inhabitants, whose numbers have plummeted more than 80% since 1975, a new book says....
