Typhoon Scares Dems; Want Hearings on Climate Change
2013-11-15
House Democrats on Wednesday seized on the devastating typhoon that hit the Philippines to call for a hearing on extreme storms and climate change.
Maybe everybody would forget about Obamacare?
Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) said Typhoon Haiyan shows the need for the House Energy and Commerce Committee to explore the link between the changing climate and natural disasters.

Waxman and Rush said Republicans should abandon the efforts to stop Obama's climate change regulations and instead "hold a hearing with the world's leading experts on the relationship between extreme storms like Typhoon Haiyan and climate change."
Might be interesting, if both parties got to call their own "experts".
The letter cited a leaked Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report that said sea level rises, coastal flooding, storm surges and more are a direct result of climate change.

#2  Better to hold a hearing on appeasing Gordo, the God of storms and weather. It seems that our sacrifices have failed to please Him.

#1  One data point does not make a trend.

This year was one of the quietest for the Atlantic hurricane season.
