The Congressional Hearing on Climate Science

Some very good reading. I recommend it:

From the Select Committee on Global Warming:

Even after months of personal attacks against climate scientists stemming from a manufactured scandal over stolen emails, the underlying science behind the need to stem the tide of heat-trapping emissions remains solid. To explain what we know about climate change, and why and how we know it, Chairman Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming hosted top-level American climate scientists at a congressional hearing on Thursday, May 6, 2010.

The scientists addressed the claims of deniers head-on. Thursday’s panel featured a member of the investigative panel convened by the University of East Anglia and led by Lord Ron Oxburgh to review the stolen emails from that school’s Climactic Research Unit. The “Oxburgh Inquiry” exonerated the scientists who were attacked following the emails, saying they “saw no evidence of any deliberate scientific malpractice in any of the work.”

By The Way: The Republicans felt they must have some anti-science representative on hand, so they brought in their old friend (and thoroughgoing liar), Lord Monckton. Amazing how they couldn't find even one single Climate Scientist who would speak for their side... Read it for laughs...

Scientists (and  Monckton, for laughs) Testify on Global Warming
