Just received from Marc Morano:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, trying to ward off potentially sweeping federal emissions regulations, is pushing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to hold a rare public hearing on the scientific evidence for man-made climate change.
Chamber officials say it would be "the Scopes monkey trial of the 21st century" -- complete with witnesses, cross-examinations and a judge who would rule, essentially, on whether humans are warming the planet to dangerous effect.
The US Chamber of Commerce represents 3 million large and small businesses. The article also mentions that if the EPA denies the request, then the Chamber plans to take the fight to federal court.
At last a representative body challenging the 'sham science' unlike our farm bodies, or people like Heather Ridout of the Australian Industry Group who falls into line behind Mr Rudd. Also unlike our mining unions who should be defending the jobs of miners.
And after that...the treason trials?
