UN, White House Climate Reports "an Excuse to Control the American People"

The chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology charged Thursday that reports from the United Nations and the White House on the threat of global climate change “appear to be designed to spread fear and alarm” in an effort to provide the Obama administration with “an excuse to control more of the lives of the American people.”

Speaking at a hearing designed to examine the process utilized by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in developing its assessment of climate change, a report slated for release in October, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) asserted that the group’s goal “is an international climate treaty that redistributes wealth among nations.”

“Serious concerns have been raised about the IPCC, including lack of transparency in author and study selection, and inconsistent approaches to data quality, peer review, publication cut-off dates and the cherry-picking of results,” Smith said.

The chairman also derided the National Climate Assessment, a White House report assembled by 300 noted scientists that found the nation already is experiencing the effects of global climate change and warned that the situation is likely to worsen.

Smith said the administration is using that report to promulgate new greenhouse gas regulations on the nation’s power industry – expected to be issued by the Environmental Protection Agency on Monday – that will “stifle economic growth and lead to hundreds of thousands of fewer jobs each year.”

“The administration’s regulatory agenda will hit workers and families hard but have no discernable impact on global temperature,” Smith said.
