The fires were mostly lightening caused, with some human fire starters involved. The fire detective will figure it out.
How about we figure out what happened to Al Gore’s warm blanket, around earth’s equator.
You know, when it snows, there are no hearings.
Via The Hill, which gets the headline right: “Dems use wildfires to call for hearings on climate change.”
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), a top House Democrat, is urging the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Republican majority to hold a hearing that explores links between climate change and extreme weather.
The request, spelled out in a letter Friday, is a sign that Democrats and environmentalists hope to translate the recent record-setting heatwaves into political momentum for efforts to battle global warming.
It asks Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) to convene a hearing “on the recent wildfires and extreme weather events the United States has experienced and the role global climate change played in these events.”
Waxman, the committee’s top Democrat, notes that Republicans have declined repeated requests over the past year to hold hearings on climate science.
How about a hearing on how Obama bureaucrats canceled crucial aerial tanker contracts, which was spotlighted on June 20?
How about a hearing on how Clinton-era roadless regulations have increased wildfire risks in Colorado and across the West?
How about a hearing on how critical air support sat grounded while the fires raged?
Nope. Can’t have reality-based factors intrude on Inquisitor Henry Waxman’s narrative. The Dems’ actual goal isn’t truth or accountability, after all. It’s Green Kabuki Theater.
Time to feed the hoax, the snows have gone. One thing to consider, there is no way to stop the next glaciation period. It’s been part of Earth’s climate change ever since plate tectonics closed off the Panama ocean circulation. That happened about 3 plus million years ago, and snow-ball earth has happened every 100,000 years or so. What are we going to do when 1000s of feet of ice are advancing on New York city. It will happen.
