GOP To Kill Pelosi’s Global Warming Cmte

From a tear-stained New York Times:

Republicans Killing Climate Committee

Published: December 1, 2010

Republicans plan to eliminate the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, which was created in 2007 by the current speaker, Nancy Pelosi, to examine climate change and press for possible caps on carbon dioxide emissions.

"Possible caps on carbon dioxide emissions"? Ms. Pelosi herself said that ‘Cap And Trade’ was "the third pillar" of Obama’s (that is, her) agenda.

Climate change matters are overseen by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, as well as the Natural Resources Committee; the select committee did not pass legislation but did hold hearings, which will cease in the new Congress.

Michael Steel, a spokesman for Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio, who will become speaker in January, said the select committee was unnecessary. “The Select Committee on Global Warming was created by Democrats simply to provide political cover to pass their job-killing national energy tax,” he said.

Don’t worry. The Democrats will find other ways ‘monkey wrench’ whatever is left of the American economy.

After all, Mr. Obama is still President. And he isn’t under the tiresome constraint of having to pass legislation. (Cf. his diktat banning oil drilling in the Eastern Gulf and on the Atlantic coast and anywhere else that strikes his fancy.)

    How many ways are there to keep this committee alive?
    ~Executive order.
    ~Appointing a Czar to oversee this committee?
    ~Shaming Republicans to keep it functioning.

    Government offices NEVER DIE, just like villians in cartoons, they never really get a death and burial, they just come back time and time again.

    Pay attention to this, NO person is going to get axed, the Democrats will keep them on the payroll for their continued support no matter what.

    Pelosi really referred to Quran Hajj part of Mecca Pilgrimage where they throw stones at the 3 pillars representing satan? Then they slaughter goats & cattle, and wonder why the stench is unbearable. The muslims probably roll around on the carcasses like dogs do.

    Tator, I believe the federal money to planned parenthood is already a done deal.

    When Obama has made so many statements that putting money into the global warming is his priority, in order for the U.S. to get back to being the leader of the world; I’d say this was the weapon to bankrupt Americans beyond repair. He already passed where homes built before 1978 have to be tested through non other than the EPA. They are now a store selling the only acceptable kits and tests on these homes for lead in home or soil. With the Supreme Court Justice okaying cities and towns able to compensate peoples home for the betterment of the community, they now have more power. People who have hung onto their old homes near the expanding & growing central down towns, are now losing at a loss.
    The Habitats of Humanity continue to get stimulus money from the federal government. One of the biggest requirements is getting donations, and they are talking people into donating these older homes or the property to the city.

    Long story on what’s going on with Obama’s new guidelines for schools to get stimulus money, also comes from showing the schools are poor. Also, they make the youth do their fund raising and require them to do community service. It’s a step beyond Obama’s plan that students doing community service can be matched per hour for credit to pay their tuition.
    It’s very complicated, complex. the books are cooked, and the school unions have come up with more corruptness, to include telling the government on paper they have new higher tech classes that do not even exist to get more stimulus money. It is on-going at a rapid speed.

    Also, the advantage of the recent example of the IL school doing away with AP classes, which can harm them getting stimulus money is not a problem, because they can easier get 500,000 dollars in “Title 1” money.
    So, basically, the poorer the school, the worse the non-English speaking and other minority children that keeps the grades from going up to get the stimulus the money, the schools are daily cashing in. Add that to every town and city asking for taxes to go up to pay for things. Somehow the lottery money towards schools doesn’t happen either. Now learning to speak English, is listed as a “Secondary language” class.
