Nancy Pelosi Wants Emissions Halved By 2050

Pelosi Backs Restrictions on Heat-Trapping Gases


February 9, 2007

The United States has to cut its greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2050, and mandatory restrictions are the only way to do it, Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the House Science and Technology Committee yesterday.

Ms. Pelosi added that even though she had once opposed using nuclear power to supply some energy needs, she now believed that it should be on the table, if the disposal of radioactive waste could be settled. The speaker said she hoped that the House would consider bills on global warming by July 4.

Ms. Pelosi spoke along with four climate scientists who worked for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the United Nations-sponsored group that issued its latest report last week…

Mind you, this is the same Nancy Pelosi who is insisting on being carted back and forth to her home district once a week in a taxpayer supplied C-32, along with 45 or so of her closest friends and family.

Once again Ms. Pelosi has broken through the marble ceiling — in hypocrisy.
