House Science Committee to become Anti Science Committee
December 2, 2010
Here are the candidates for chairman of the House Science and Technology Committee.
Behind door number 1, Dana Rohrbacher, who has promised to expose and denounce what he regards as phony science of climate change – which is really a mask for an evil cabal bent on global governance. Controls on carbon, he says, will make car and plane travel so expensive, that only the very wealthy will have those options, and “the rest of us will be stuck sitting next to gang members on public transportation.”
Behind door number 2, Rep. “Smoky Joe” Barton, right hand man of newly convicted Tom Delay, and best known for his abject apology to BP’s CEO for the American people’s timerity in seeking redress for a catastrophic man-made disaster – calling it a “tragedy of the first proportion.”
Then, there’s Rep. John Shimkus, who believes that God will make Climate Change go away.
Now, in terms of actual seniority, Rep. Ralph Hall of Texas is next in line – but it is not yet clear how hard he is going to fight for the position. Rep. Hall is not as rabidly ideological on the issue, but makes it clear that he won’t brook any nonsense from city slickin’ whipper snappers trying to rebrand global warming as “Climate disruption”.
