Hill hearing on global warming cancelled by D.C. snowstorm

RightMarch March 7, 2013

Stephen Dinan at The Washington Times reports:

An unusually chilly March day and the snowstorm it spawned have shut down much of official Washington on Wednesday — including a hearing House Republicans had called to examine global warming.

“Postponed due to weather,” read the notice from the House Science, Space and Technology Committee sent in the morning.

The hearing was scheduled to give House lawmakers a comprehensive briefing on how well scientists understand the climate and humans’ effects on it as a means “to inform decision-making on potential mitigation options.”

While the federal government reports that U.S. temperatures have been ticking up in recent years, freak cold snaps and storms often leave average voters questioning whether global warming is a real phenomenon.

The average high temperature in Washington for March 6 is 52 degrees, with a record high of 81 degrees in 1961 and a record low of 10 degrees in 1888.

Scientists argue that individual events are “weather,” while the broader trends constitute climate — and they say the trend there is clear.
