Issa calls for “relook” at climate science

Still scared to admit its all a hoax, Issa said “It could be happening faster or slower,” he added, “but it’s very clear that those people played fast and loose with both the truth and our money.”

‘House Oversight and Government Reform ranking member Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is promising to give a “careful relook” at climate change science in the wake of last year’s “Climategate” scandal if Republicans take over the House.’

‘Climate skeptics pounced, arguing it is a prime example of how the science behind global warming is manipulated.’

‘Issa — who could become a key part of an effort to expand oversight and congressional critique of the Obama administration if Republicans control the House — last December said the U.N.’s decision to investigate the matter constituted a “direct rebuke” of the Obama administration, which had not opened up its inquiry. ‘

‘“I won’t accept anything as settled science because in the 1970s remember you had Jim Hansen talking about global cooling,” Issa said, referring to the head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and outspoken advocate of efforts to mandate reduction in man-made greenhouse gas emissions.’
