This Heartlander Magazine report is worth a look just for its tongue-in-cheek graphic called ‘The Scientific Method – Then And Now‘.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), chairman of the Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness, convened a hearing on December 8 titled “Data or Dogma? Promoting Open Inquiry in the Debate over the Magnitude of Human Impact on Earth’s Climate.”
A number of noted scientists gave presentations at the hearing and I thought I’d summarize a few of their remarks [see link below].
Yahoo news quotes Cruz saying, “climate change [is] a ‘pseudo-scientific theory’ by liberals seeking to impose government control over the economy and ‘every aspect of our lives’,” and the scientists who testified reinforced his point.
The hearing provided several important take-away messages. Two of the most critical ones:
* Politics is corrupting climate science
* Earth is benefiting from, not being harmed by, rising carbon dioxide levels.
