Left during the day, a message from Biz Markie inviting your blogger to the Repower America rally on Capitol Hill today, featuring EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., President of the Hip Hop Caucus. Repower America is former Vice President Gore’s organization that supports a radical restructuring of society and the economy to stop global warming.
Administrator Lisa Jackson was one of the subjects of discussion this morning on the Andy and Grandy local radio show (WMAL) during an interview with Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), the ranking member of the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee, which held a budget hearing on the EPA on Tuesday. The Senator was complimentary toward Jackson, suggesting she didn’t really believe that the science on anthropogenic global warming was beyond dispute, and she was just toeing the Administration line.
At the EPW hearing, Inhofe released a new report about the forced consensus community, “‘Consensus’ Exposed: The CRU Controversy,” covering the the controversy surrounding emails and documents released from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU).
In his committee statement, Inhofe said:
EPA’s endangerment finding rests on bad science. The EPW minority report provides further proof that EPA needs to scrap the endangerment finding and start over again.
But that’s not what EPA is doing. It wants $43.5 million in new funding to regulate greenhouse gases. This is seed money for the most economically destructive regulatory initiative in this nation’s history. The nation is mired in an unemployment crisis; people need jobs. Yet once this effort commences, those fortunate to work will be out of work, and those looking for jobs won’t find them.
And yet the Hip Hop Caucus claims to be rallying for jobs. They should invite Sen. Inhofe to their event.
