Boehner spokesman: "The Select Committee on Global Warming is unnecessary and taxpayers will not have to fund it in the 112th Congress"
Members of the House of Representatives will not be pondering global warming on Speaker John A. Boehners watch.
Republicans plan to eliminate the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, which was created by the current speaker, Nancy Pelosi, in 2007 to examine climate change and press for possible caps on carbon dioxide emissions.
Climate change matters are overseen by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, as well as the Natural Resources Committee; the select committee did not pass legislation but did hold hearings, which will cease in the new Congress.

I love it...
To quote Kool-Aid guy: “Oooh Yeah!”
Defund the EPA, who are now making new rules for “greenhouse gas emissions”, etc., to accomplish the Global Warming/UN-appeasing handouts to 3rd world asshats for “damages”, to be funded by taking American Taxpayer wealth and re-distributing it globally, to the “needy”.
It was ten below zero last week. In November. I think we’re safe for now.
Another one bites the dust.
Show us the “Repeal Healthcare Reform”, “Cut 400,000 Fedgov Jobs”, Deport All Illegal Aliens and Build The Wall”, and “Eliminate Federal Government Unions” committes and I’ll be impressed.
Now he needs to defund the EPA and Dept. of (no) Energy.
Shut them down.
Take no prisoners.
Yippee!!! My stupid Dem Representative will that much less to muck up!
OMG! MSNBC just self-combusted!
The Democratic members of the Select Committee are:
Congressman Ed Markey of Massachusetts, Chairman
Congressman Earl Blumenauer of Oregon
Congressman Jay Inslee of Washington
Congressman John Larson of Connecticut
Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin of South Dakota
Congressman Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri
Congressman John Hall of New York
Congressman John Salazar of Colorado
Congresswoman Jackie Speier of California
The Republican members to the Select Committee are:
Congressman James Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, Ranking Member
Congressman John Shadegg of Arizona
Congresswoman Candice Miller of Michigan
Congressman John Sullivan of Oklahoma
Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee
Congresswoman Shelley Capito of West Virginia
Good. Let’s aim for some unnecessary cabinet departments now. And of course HusseinCare.
Boehner flying commercial and this?
Boehner just shot up a few points in my opinion of him.
The speakership is his to use ... or to abuse. He’s made a couple of good decisions already.
Ya hear that, Marv? Throw another penguin on the barbie. Time to party!
Well, that certainly won't help global warming.
Does anyone else find it amusing that this story comes to us via Hot Air Pundit?
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Irony never sleeps.
I agree, but what do Lindsey and Newt say?
what do you expect from pmsnbc? they are too focused on giggling when they “lean” forward.
Agree! But it remains to be see just how they follow through on what they SAY they will do. We need to stay watching!
To quote Hannibal, “But not anymore.”
Hot doggies!! Heck uv a start. Let’s ROLL!!
It’s a good start, but the GISS and NOAA global warming divisions should be first on the chopping block when they officially take over
Now, if we can just get rid of the EPA we will be in business.
GOOD JOB! Now can I have my incandescent bulbs back?!?!?!?!?!
They’re getting warmer...warmer...
Now how about some departments, like those they promised in the 1994 revolution.
The Department of Commerce, the Department of Education and a more recent useless monster bureaucracy, Homeland Security
This one was rushed into creation after 9/11 to force the CIA and the FBI to corporate and share vital intelligent information [like that on the 9/11 terrorists that they didn't] instead of jealously guarding it from each other while Ameicans die.
This they to give them leg up on each other will competing for annual Congressional funding of taxpayer dollars.
Of course after creation of this white elephant, because of much wailing and gnashing of teeth they where left out from under the jurisdiction of HS which we still got anyway.
Also let's not forget FEMA whose specialty is hiring Blackwater to disarm old women home owning Hurricane victims who have been abandoned by their police force and left at the mercy of looters.
And like I have said before, as a retired teacher of 43 years, I will love the day when the Department of Education and the NEA Union are gone forever!
Boehner is playing a strong hand well. Reagan said “Trust but verify”, but for these RINOs I would shorten that to “..verify”. Boehner has sold us out to the bankers once and under pressure he will do it again someday. They already admitted they wont do anything unpopular like get rid of the Obama-care exclusion mandates.
In the mean time I celebrate Boehner crushing Democrats politically and passing stuff the liberals hate, and watching them turn on Obama for signing it. I called Boehner's office before the election and advised him to hold hearings on the Economic Recovery Act Stimulus waste and Obama-care bribes. But that was already on their list.
Just outstanding....now how about the EPA funding...and what is that outfit that Jim Hansen works for?
Time to prepare for some clebrations.
Time to prepare for some celebrations.
Defund the EPA while they are at it!
I’d like to see a video of Pelosi reacting to the news she would lose her mechanism for scamming the nation.
Now do away with the light bulb ban!
“Members of the House of Representatives will not be pondering global warming on Speaker John A. Boehners watch.”
Can you hear that, those pops and bangs are the lib heads exploding!!!!!
Boehner, stay at it and I could really learn to like you!
See link just above...EPA is moving ahead.
