Waxman renews press for science hearing on ‘extreme’ weather

We would love to have such a hearing just to hear ex-Black Panther Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) talk about extreme weather.

Reps. Henry Waxman of California and Bobby Rush of Illinois, the top Democrats on the full committee and its Energy and Power subpanel, asked Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) for a hearing on the issue.

  1. I would encourage all Congressmen to follow the Bobby Rush model in order to minimize the damage they can do to the economy. If we had more Congressmen watching icebergs melt, it would certainly keep them more usefully occupied. Maybe they could bring some demostrators with them from Zuccotti Park and “Occupy an Icerberg”.

Trying to bully a consensus where even the warmistas still working in their respective scientific fields won’t go. Study shopping as a reason for hearings? Another installment of the Waxman Inquisition.
