Well, I signed it, but have little hope of it making a difference. Even if the Republican controlled committee removed him, they would just appoint another Republican who is just as likely to deny the science also. In fact, they may give us someone worse, like Paul Broun (R-Georgia) who denies even more science:
Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) tore into scientists as tools of the devil in a speech at the Liberty Baptist Church Sportsmanís Banquet last month.
ďAll that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell,Ē Broun said. ďAnd itís lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior.Ē

Signed and noted, but sadly I think we have a long road ahead of us as to getting government/ and state representatives to recognize that our world is in a crisis. We need new leaders like us on Care2!

Having seen how narrow minded some climate change deniers are just dishonest and seen one ripped apart by a Nobel prize winning scientist it was obvious how ignorant they are. Climate change is about real science and it is peer reviewed by professionals not some amateur tosser with a degree in journalism, why do you think they print so many ill informed scare stories with no proof?

So now people who don't believe what you believe are scary and ignorant and could care less about the environment. Well, I care about water pollution, radiation from coal, and much more. BUT I do not buy into a scare because a lot of official sounding noise is made about it. Not without research and some hard thought. But you are sold on the idea that disagreement is dangerous. I have a news flash. Each and every one of you signing this petition has proved you know diddly about scientific method. Worse, you refuse to think about what should be obvious : that scientists are not the kind of people who would support such religious fervour. They are open minded explorers, not people who uncritically swallow whole propaganda from authorities that they know are corrupt murdering liars.
Ignorant is exactly what this fellow is. Ignorant of any conviction that Man has attained Godhood.

I am outraged when someone who has been heavily subsidized by corporate interests is appointed to oversee a committee that is supposed to work toward benefiting the country and not the special interests by whom they have been bought. I hope our voices are heard and someone sensitive to climate change is appointed!
