Here is an excerpt from the full Congressional Hearing of February 2009, when it was still fashionable to talk about “Global Warming”.
Despite the chill in the air today, global temperatures remain
high. Two thousand eight was tied for the eighth warmest year on
record. The evidence of shrinking ice caps and increasingly violent
storms reminds us of the danger and challenges we face due to climate
change. The debate is no longer about whether humans are
causing global warming but what we are prepared to do about it.
Now that the United States has a President committed to action,
Congress is poised to help resolve it. Last Congress made progress
with the passage of the 2007 energy bill, which by raising fuel
economy and appliance efficiency standards will reduce global
warming pollution in the future.
Oh really Congress? Would you care to update the settled science to include all weather events that you can now say is the result of Climate Change?
How about earthquakes, snowstorms, record low temperatures? Climate change?
Volcanoes ready to errupt, tsunamis, hurricanes? Let me guess — Climate change?
No matter what happens in the extreme – – climate change?
The only science that is settled is the rule that if you can tax the people to reduce wealth you will. There is a “law” that is observable and consistent, even if the climate changes, wouldn’t you say?
