Click here for more of Jon Stewart’s coverage of the recent House Committee on Science, Space and Technology hearing.
Stewart’s response to the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology recent discussions on climate change. It’s grim evidence that the people in charge of our planet’s health are either not fit or not willing to understand the concern. The earlier parts of Stewart’s piece makes the situation even more grim.
I just popped over to see what the Committee’s website looked like. I thought I’d found a parody site.
These are on the front page. One touting strictures on the Environmental Protection Agency.
And the other calling out the National Science Foundation for wasting money.
Aren’t these two of the biggest organizations this committee should be supporting? I expected the next image to call PBS out as communists.
While none of the members of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology noted in Stewart’s piece are up for election this year, please, please, please consider your candidates’ stances on the environment, science, and education when you vote this Fall. You can find out more about the 2014 U.S. elections here and register to vote here. You don’t even need to go outside to vote, have your absentee ballot sent to you! It really is so, so easy.
There’s no such thing as a little or unimportant election. Make sure your representatives actually represent what’s important to you!
