House GOP Holding “Mock” Climate Hearing

Mocking the climate crisis? Mocking the political process? A little of both, I guess. Reports Politico:

While Democrats bicker over a sweeping climate change bill, Republicans are going rogue, crafting an alternative hearing stacked with people they agree with. [...]


Thirteen other Republicans, including a number of members of the Energy Committee, will join Pence in the new Capitol Visitor Center for the mock hearing.

The “mock” hearing will reportedly take place next Tuesday.


The lesson: hearings are a lot more fun when you don’t invite people who disagree with you! I’m sure the Founding Fathers would be proud. (Sorry, this mocking thing must be more catching than swine flu.)
