Waxman Pushes Global Warming Voodoo Legislation

Waxman promises quick action on climate
The chairman of a key House committee said Thursday he will move "quickly and decisively" to push legislation curbing greenhouse gases with a goal of passing climate legislation out of his committee before Memorial Day.

Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., opening the new Congress' first hearing on the threats from global warming, said inaction on the climate issue is causing uncertainties that make it more difficult to emerge from the recession.

"Our environment and our economy depend on congressional action to confront the threat of climate change and secure our energy independence," said Waxman. "U.S. industries want to invest in a clean energy future, but uncertainties about whether, when and how
greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced is deterring these vital investments."
Personally, I'd be happier if Henri could make it a little warmer than -20 here. It's funny how temperature fluctuations have a pattern. It's funnier that people like Waxman don't seem to notice the temperature. Must be that bubble Reps live in that keeps him warm.
