Joe Romm's Congressional Testimony

Posted on 22 July 2012 by dana1981

In the past we've examined a lot of inaccurate climate-related testimony presented to the US Congress, including from Pat Michaels, John Christy, David Montgomery, and many other climate contrarians.  So it's probably about time that we highlight some good Congressional testimony from Joe Romm, in which he discusses some of the forthcoming impacts of climate change.

  1. Good on Joe. It is high time we ditched the euphemisms and stopped pussyfooting about. We hung along for too long with the Banking industry - bowing to calls for deregulation etc - and look exactly where that has gotten us too. If that's not a wake-up call to us ordinary folk, what will it take?

    It's a brilliant world out there - under tremendous strain - but it is still managing, just about. Let's do everything in our power, however small that may be, to further the simple cause of wanting a brilliant world for our children and grandchildren and not a toxic, polluted mess where the last 'consumers' wander about looking for the last bargains. We can do this, folks - if we speak with one voice (and not a World Socialist Government voice, before anyone starts) - just the voice of the people, who love their gardens, the wildlife around them, getting their hands dirty with the soil of the land and who hate all the form-filling, box-ticking nonsense that is the facade of dealing with the biggest issue of our lives when pretence is the order of the day. I would rather see children knowing 100 plant-names and recognising 50 different butterflies by the age of ten - as I did many years ago - than knowing 400 brand-names by the age of five. That's just one aspect, but I hope people will see where I'm coming from!

    Rant over!

  2. How nice to hear the plain truth spoken in a political environment. No doubt, being largely unacquainted with the truth, the good congress men and women will find it difficult to believe.
