My latest DeSmogBlog post is about a kind of "What's the Matter with Kansas" story when it comes to a leading House Republican and climate change:

Ralph Hall represents a state and district suffering from (and highly vulnerable to) drought; global warming is expected to worsen drought risks for Texas and Hall’s district; Hall questions the science of global warming; Hall leads his party in an effort to block funding for a climate service that would help his district, and many other regions, assess their vulnerability and prepare for a changing climate.

Head scratching encouraged. You can read the full story here.
