Climate Change in the House: Republicans to Axe Pelosi’s Global Warming Committee

Is it getting hot in here, or is Nancy Pelosi crazy? House Republicans will most likely bet on the latter:

Republicans will eliminate the House committee created by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to highlight the threat of climate change, Representative James Sensenbrenner, the top Republican on the panel, said today.

In one of her first acts as speaker in 2007, Pelosi, a California Democrat, created the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming to draw attention to climate-change science and showcase how a cap on carbon dioxide needn’t be a threat to economic growth.

The good news is that many pro-rationing climate change worry-warts won’t find out about this until they fly home next week from their low-budget meeting in Cancun, Mexico.

Another tidbit:

Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, said it’s “very disappointing” that House Republicans will shut the committee and won’t make energy independence and climate change a priority in the next Congress.

President Obama just extended offshore drilling moratoriums and imposed new drilling bans in the Gulf, as well as the Atlantic and Pacific coasts for the next several years, and Pelosi’s spokesman thinks Republicans cancelling some committee meetings will put a serious dent in America’s quest for energy independence?
