House Committee Rejects Climate Change… cites faulty claims of “climategate”

So 31 Republicans and 3 Democrats voted to repeal the EPA’s scientific endangerment finding on greenhouse pollution. This blog in Wonk Room shows who voted and quotes their past statements rejecting the “theory” of climate change.

Quite a number of them focused on the hacked emails of climate scientists that have been called “climate-gate,” as proof that climate science is fake. They fail, of course, to mention the number of scientific investigations into the matter. If you are interested in learning about the findings of these investigations undertaken by the scientific community, the Union of Concerned Scientists has a page that discusses it, with a number of links to reports.

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.

      Some experts point out that natural cycles in Earth’s orbit can alter the planet’s exposure to sunlight, which may explain the current trend. Earth has indeed experienced warming and cooling cycles roughly every hundred thousand years due to these orbital shifts, but such changes have occurred over the span of several centuries. Today’s changes have taken place over the past hundred years or less. (National Geographic: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2004/12/1206_041206_global_warming.html)
