PJTV - VodkaPundit - Week in Blogs: Waiting to Exhale: The EPA Cracks Down on Carbon

John Aravosis : I've been doing a bit of research on climate change for my CNN appearance tomorrow...

If the Democrats in Congress are really interested in the truth, rather than just furthering their political positions, they should be leading the cries for an independent review of the data that Congress, the IPCC and EPA have relied on.
