Warming skeptic gets key Science post, Politico
"Leading House climate skeptic Jim Sensenbrenner appears to have landed a perch to lead investigations into global warming science. The Wisconsin Republican is set to become the vice chairman of the House Science Committee under incoming Chairman Ralph Hall (R-Texas), Hall told POLITICO Thursday. "With his background, his insistence, he can do the mean things that we don't want to do," Hall said. "I'm a peaceful guy; he likes combat."
"Two Texas lawmakers will take the reins of the House Science and Technology Committee next year. Rep. Ralph Hall (R-Texas) will chair the committee, and Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) will be the ranking Democrat."
