War on Science: Evolution, Climate Change, and the Curious House Committee on Science

Beyond ignoring dinosaurs and billion-year-old rocks is the commission’s dismissive attitude toward global warming. None other than committee Chairman Ralph M. Hall of Texas said of climate change in an interview, “I don’t think we can control what God controls.” He then added that he is “pretty close” to Texas Governor Rick Perry’s belief that climate science is a “conspiracy.” Not to be outdone, the committee vice chairman at the time, John Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, referred in 2009 to a federal climate report as “at worst junk science.” On his web page, member Lamar Smith of Texas, to be the next committee chair, claimed the major television “networks have shown a steady pattern of bias on climate change.”
