According to the Daily Caller, Republicans in the US Congress seem set to announce hearings into the surface temperature records. This intelligence was based on a tweet from Dana Rohrabacher, the vice chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.


@caerbannog666 expect there to be congressional hearings into NASA altering weather station data to falsely indicate warming´┐╝ & sea rise
