GOP Global Warming Strategy

Posted By on Tue, Nov 16, 2010 at 6:11 PM

Last week, Mother Jones ran a piece on the GOP's return to D.C., which includes a plan by some to put to bed this crazy notion of global-warming science. Maybe immigrant scapegoats are no longer in vogue, and it's global-warming scientists who those tea-bagger Republicans can really get some mileage out of with their constituents.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the incoming head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has pledged to hold hearings on the "Politicization of Science," which will consist of a rehashing of the so-called ClimateGate "scandal." He's also called for greater oversight of the Environmental Protection Agency's coming regulations of greenhouse gases. With Issa in charge, the oversight committee will devote a good deal of time to hauling government and university climate scientists before Congress.

Hmmm... maybe activist and writer Derrick Jensen's call for a "deep green resistance" is sounding better and better all the time.
