Summary of today’s House climate hearing: GOP firmly opposed to an abusive and arrogant EPA

Here’s our take on today’s House climate hearing:

  1. Overall, good showing for GOP… skepticism and opposition to EPA is strong. As usual, some Members need some coaching. But a solid overall performance with no major gaffes.
  2. EPA chief Gina McCarthy was repeatedly forced to admit that EPA no climate benefits will be coming from its power plant rules. Moreover, the point of the rules, according to McCarthy, is too look good for international negotiations.
  3. Ernest Moniz is a total sock puppet, trying very hard to spout and reiterate the party line. If this guy ever has any internal dialogue involving intellectual honesty, he will physically implode.
  4. Rep. David McKinley the strong point that Obama wrecking the economy for no gain was an “abuse of power.”
  5. EPA defended requiring coal power plants to use carbon capture technology that does yet exist.

Those are just some of the highlights. Check out JunkScience’s live Twitter stream from the hearing, below.
