Total abandonment of science by the Congressional Left
The professional Warmists at DeSmog Blog have put up here a number of pages from the Congressional Record that report testimony on climate change by Harry Reid, Elizabeth Warren and other well-known scientists. The testimony by Harry Reid is a particular hoot. He has repeated for the umpteenth time his sweeping condemnation of the Koch Bros. They are a worm in Harry's brain. He can't get past them. According to him they are responsible for all climate skepticism.
And Pocohontas is not much better. She aims her spray rather more widely, with Lord Monckton coming in for a big blast. She claims that he is not a scientist and seems to think that what he says is therefore worthless -- quite overlooking the fact that she is not a scientist either. Is her opinion worthless? I think so but I'm betting that she does not.
But in the end the whole session is just "ad hominem" argument, argument which is of zero logical force. The pages concerned are awash with sweeping and unreferenced personal vilification. When Pocohontas says that a Monckton claim has been disproved, we might have expected the name or names of the person/s who did the disproving. But no such luck. And nowhere is there any mention of a single climate datum, fact or figure.
It's all rather Satanic, actually: An unending flow of hate and nothing but hate.
