U.S. House of Representatives Votes to Repeal Climate Science
Posted April 7, 2011
`(4) CERTAIN PRIOR AGENCY ACTIONS- The following rules and actions (including any supplement or revision to such rules and actions) are repealed and shall have no legal effect: ...
`(B) `Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases Under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act', published at 74 Fed. Reg. 66496 (December 15, 2009). ...(emphasis added)
Let me translate. Subparagraph (B) refers to EPA’s formal finding, based on an extensive scientific record, that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare (and that emissions from motor vehicles “cause or contribute” to these harms.)
On Tuesday I spoke to a Congressman who said he was leaning toward voting for this bill. He said he wanted to send a message to EPA. I asked him to consider what message he would be sending by voting for a bill to repeal science. He said the bill didn’t repeal science. We sent him the citation. He voted for it anyway.
No wonder the rest of the country thinks Washington is out of touch with reality.
