Reid’s inconvenient theory will get House airing
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has been derided for saying that global warming contributed to last week’s wildfires in Southern California.
On Tuesday the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming announced a hearing:
“A Spark Neglected: Wildfires and Global Warming,” it labeled the proceedings scheduled for Thursday.
“Select committee to examine link between changing climate, frequency and intensity of wildfires,” the description continued.
A committee spokesman said the hearing “was prompted by the wildfires out West and the view of some scientists that the increasing size, frequency and intensity of these fires is affected adversely by global warming.” A panel of scientists will testify.

we went camping with Spent and Timorah last weekend. trying to second guess when the leaves would turn and hoping the weather wouldn't be as cold as last year. it was 0/0 visibility when drove in on friday night and when we woke up saturday morning, but a beautiful sunny day by saturday afternoon. a previous fire ban had been lifted by the time we arrived, so what was teetering on being a cold, dreary weekend turned out perfect.
