They're streaming live from the Science Committee right now....MIT's Kerry Emanuel is the scientist on the panel who will be defending the mainstream scientific view that it's warming out there, thanks to homo sapiens. Several other witnesses are far more "skeptical." My take on the hearing is here. Short quote:
This sort of thing has been going on in the US Congress for a long time—for over a decade. So in a sense, one more doubt-mongering hearing doesn’t move the cultural confusion needle much. The real problem, for me, is that our culture’s outrage meter seems similarly calibrated.
P.S. John Christy just said "hide the decline." Heh heh. P.P.S.: Kerry Emanuel really laid down the gauntlet on the non-scandal of "ClimateGate," and also on the poor process that Congress is engaged in when it makes "mascots of mavericks," as Emanuel put it--with some nice alliteration.
