The Man Who Now Runs the House Science Committee Does Not Believe in Global Warming


Meet Representative Ralph Hall. The Republican from Texas is in line to run the House Science Committee. He says things like the following:

This administration argues that cutting greenhouse emissions as a policy directive is justified by science ... I think this hearing today will demonstrate and should demonstrate that reasonable people have serious questions about our knowledge of the state of the science.

Or, "I’ve had people tell me if we had all the money in the world, put it in Texas Stadium, people couldn’t change nature’s future one iota."

Unlike other members of his party, he did not use the God-promised-he-wouldn't-flood-the-earth-again theory to throw doubt on the existence of serious climate change.
