Global Warming Defeated by Utah's Legislature

Politicians succeed where scientists fail

This is just too delicious. The Utah House of Representatives has just passed a resolution (by 56 to 17), which declares that global warming science is a conspiracy and urges the Environmental Protection Agency to halt any and all carbon-reduction activities it may have underway and withdraw its recent “endangerment finding,” which declares that carbon dioxide is harmful to humans.

SolveClimate, where a report and commentary on this development appears, reveals that Utah gets 90 percent of its electricity from burning coal, and suggests this may not be a coincidence.

But thanks, Utah, for doing a Wizard of Oz number for us, wishing the problem away. The resolution was sent to the state senate for consideration.
