The Week Ahead January 29- February 2

In her new column in The Wall Street Journal, Kimberly Strassel writes today about the Democrat’s agenda on global warming for the 110th Congress: Strassel writes:

“With Al Gore getting his Oscar nod, they've [Democrats] got a "problem" that captures the public imagination, as well as an endless supply of cash from thrilled environmental groups. No need to spoil it with a solution.”

 And so it begins next week in the United States Senate. The EPW Committee will hold a hearing in which every United States Senator has been invited to share their thoughts on the issue of global warming with each Senator allowed up to ten minutes to speak. The hearing is scheduled to last all day, so we thought we would provide you some useful resources whether you can make it to the hearing or not:

  • Check out the recently redesigned EPW Committee Website where you will find all of Senator Inhofe’s speeches (video and audio clips available), press releases, facts of the day, blog entries related to global warming.
  • Download Senator Inhofe’s “A Skeptic’s Guide to Debunking Global Warming Alarmism. Hot & Cold Media Spin Cycle: A Challenge To Journalists who Cover Global Warming.” and bring it with you next week.
  • Read the new Inhofe-EPW Press Blog. The Hill reported this week that due to the volume of people visiting the new Inhofe-EPW Blog, all Senate Web site were shut down for part of the day.
