Kansas House Panel Shortens, Adopts Climate Measure

Associated Press - February 19, 2014 2:53 pm

A Kansas House committee has approved a resolution protesting President Barack Obama’s plan on climate change after stripping out language suggesting the science behind it is flawed.

The Energy and Environment Committee’s voice vote Tuesday sends the measure to the House for debate.

The nonbinding resolution says the plan released by the president last year would harm the economy and asks Congress to block it. Obama’s plan includes tougher pollution standards for power plants and higher vehicle fuel efficiency standards.

The resolution initially contained more than a page of language questioning the scientific consensus that human activity contributes to climate change. Environmentalists labeled it a denial resolution.

Overland Park Republican Craig McPherson pushed to shorten the measure and said the committee wanted to highlight the economic harm of Obama’s plan.

Algore lost all credibility when he bought a $multi-million$ ranch on the West Coast whose highest point is 15 feet above sea level.
Talk about hypocrisy… and We The Sheople paid for it.
