Rep. Waxman Questions Treatment of Climate Scientists

Committee on Government Reform Minority Office

Waxman has written an interesting letter to Barton concerning his harassment of several climate scientists (also blogged here, here and here).

Waxman's letter refers to Barton's statment that
the Committee [on Energy and Commerce] must have full and accurate information when considering matters relating to climate change policy
and makes the important point:
If the Committee indeed has a genuine interest in the science of global warming, you should withdraw these letters and instead schedule a long-overdue Commiittee hearing on climate change.
There's little chance of that happening, of course. But it does look like this fight is heading straight into the political arena, which is where it belongs.
