Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy wasnt able to definitively say whether the world has gotten warmer in Senate testimony.
Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions asked McCarthy to confirm a statement made by President Obama last year that global temperatures were increasing faster in the last five or ten years than climate scientists had predicted.
McCarthy couldnt answer the question, saying that she only repeats what the climate scientists tell her. Sessions was not satisfied with her response.
Do I not have the right to ask the Director of EPA a simple question that is relevant to the dispute that is before us? Sessions angrily asked. Is the temperature around the globe increasing faster than was predicted, even 10 years ago [as the President claimed]?
I cant answer that question, McCarthy said.
You are asking us to impose billions of dollars of cost on this economy and you wont answer the simple question of whether [temperature around the globe is increasing faster than predicted] is an accurate statement or not? Sessions shot back.
I just look at what the climate scientists tell me, said McCarthy.
The hearing was meant to examine President Obamas climate agenda and featured two panels of environmentalists, climate scientists and federal officials. Last summer, Obama pledged to use his executive powers to fight global warming. His main effort so far has been focused on banning the construction of new coal-fired power plants.
The EPA recently published its carbon dioxide emissions limits for coal plants. In order to comply with such limits, coal plants must install costly clean coal technology that is not commercially proven.
Why not just lie and make it up, it happens everyday in that parallel universe.
Because that useless bureaucrat knows nothing about science. Nor do half the climate “scientists”, who are positing warming based on an engineering error in their sensor grid (urban heat island effect).
Just more of the huge scam upon the wealth of America.
We don’t need no stinking facts!
Lord, how I love my senator, The Honorable Jeff Sessions!
Headline of the Day Poll
What is motivating politicians who promote Global Warming theories?
Sincere concern for the environment. (45%)
Lust for payola and power. (45%)
I don’t know. (10%)
hmmmmmm . . . .
“You’re not supposed to ask for facts, Senator!”
Yeah, he should’ve asked what her feelings were on the subject instead.
“....Gina McCarthy wasnt able to definitively say whether the world has gotten warmer....”
Say it anyway — no one will ever hold your feet to the fire (no pun intended).
The answer is... Yes. 10,000 years ago there was ice a mile thick that extended as far south as St. Louis. The earth has been warming since then. So the real question is, why has it warmed? Why did it cool? Why will it cool again? Hint, it has never been caused by humans.
The EPA is now emotionally based.
She is telling the truth. She doesn't know.
Unfortunately, if there were reasonable evidence that global temperatures increased faster than climate scientists predicted, she'd be saying that the science is settled.
EPA chief, ON HOT SEAT, unable to say if the world has gotten warmer
But Leon is getting larger....
I vas only following orders.
So she ADMITS a tape recorder could do her job?
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
You are a winner! So, there’s at least 2 of us that get it. It’s a start...
Thanks Da Bilge Troll.
