(Daily Caller) California Republican Rep. Tom McClintock opened a congressional hearing by reading a Washington Post article detailing the “unheard of” impacts global warming had on the Arctic ecosystem.
“The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and some place the seals are finding the water too hot,” McClintock read in a Wednesday hearing, adding that reports “all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.”
McClintock went on, then asked President Barack Obama’s top climate adviser Christy Goldfuss if “this the crisis you’re referring to?” — referring to a new guidance her Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) staff issued on accounting for global warming impacts of federal agency actions.
Goldfuss said she was Very Concerned about this crisis, but wasn’t familiar with the report
“Perhaps the reason is because it was November 2, 1922 that The Washington Post carried this article,” McClintock said.
It turns out McClintock was reading a Washington Post article from November 1922, not November 2015 as many listening, including Goldfuss, likely assumed.
Of course, let’s not forget that the Cult of Climastrology is now trying to say that it was Mankind’s actions starting back in the early 1800’s that started this current warm period, because, of course they do.
