Sensenbrenner Goes Into Combat

Jim, if you need any ammo, you know who to call!

Leading House climate skeptic Jim Sensenbrenner appears to have landed a perch to lead investigations into global warming science.

The Wisconsin Republican is set to become the vice chairman of the House Science Committee under incoming Chairman Ralph Hall (R-Texas), Hall told POLITICO Thursday.

“With his background, his insistence, he can do the mean things that we don’t want to do,” Hall said. “I’m a peaceful guy; he likes combat.” --Politico, quoted at Badger Blogger

We'd be happy to find out if they bleed green or red.

This could be good news. Faced with facts, Sensenbrenner may have to acknowledge that the prosperity, security and future economic power of this nation rely on our understanding and acceptance of scientific fact.

Even if one believes in that global warming is real..

There is no scientific "fact" that a) it is caused by humans or b) that humans could do anything about it.

And seeing that the hoi-paloi at the UN have admitted - out loud - that the whole climate change thing is to globally redistribute wealth... I'm not inclined to believe anything they - or those scientists supported by the UN - say.

Its good that a old cantankerous grump like Sensenbrenner will take them on. Pass the popcorn!

Correct me if I am wrong but I seem to recall the senior researcher at East Anglia declared that in Great Britain children would grow up having never seen snow. I wonder what he would say now?
