It’s on! Or maybe not so much:
The House Energy and Commerce Committee has added Republican former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) to the roster of witnesses for its hearing on a climate bill today. He joins former Vice President Al Gore on the witness list.
The Hill is reporting the meeting of these two as a “global warming showdown.” It isn’t. Not unless you consider “humans are definitely causing global warming so we must act” and “humans are probably causing global warming so we must act” to be drastically opposing views.
Gingrich jumped the eco shark long ago when he appeared in ads with Nancy “don’t know much about waterboarding” Pelosi urging Americans to take action on climate change. Click the pic to see the commercial:
Pelosi and Gingrich urged everyone to go to WeCanSolveIt.org and help fight climate change. The site features a video of Oprah nodding in unquestioning approval of Al Gore, the man who has become the Ravi Shankar of new millennium junk science by using fear, misinformation, gullibility and blind faith as a sitar that he plays with wildly lucrative virtuosity.
Unfortunately, the only “showdown” that will occur today will be over what to order for lunch. Speaking of that, if many of the attendees want to know what’s really causing global warming — Gore included — all they have to do is strip off their shirts and look in a mirror. Most preferably in private.blog comments powered by Disqus
