Power Fails at EPA Power Plant Hearing

EPA Official Explains Agency’s Plan to Curb Carbon Emissions…and Then This Happened
The US energy industry has been warning for years that the Obama EPA’s caps on carbon emissions will lead to several bad outcomes for Americans, including skyrocketing energy prices and even brownouts and blackouts.

The EPA’s Janet McCabe was testifying in the House today on the agency’s plan to cap carbon emissions. And then the power went out.
Go here to see the video.

Remember in 1988 when James Hansen and Sen. Tim Wirth (D-Dishonesty) turned off the air conditioning and opened the window at a congressional hearing on global warming on what was historically the hottest day of the year in Washington D.C.?
And did you also alter the temperature in the hearing room that day?

... What we did it was went in the night before and opened all the windows, I will admit, right? So that the air conditioning wasn't working inside the room and so when the, when the hearing occurred there was not only bliss, which is television cameras in double figures, but it was really hot. ...

So Hansen's giving this testimony, you've got these television cameras back there heating up the room, and the air conditioning in the room didn't appear to work. So it was sort of a perfect collection of events that happened that day, with the wonderful Jim Hansen, who was wiping his brow at the witness table and giving this remarkable testimony. ...
Payback's a bitch.
