Republicans and the Value of Pi

Some day this vote ("Committee Republicans Unanimously Reject Measures Reaffirming Science Behind Global Warming") is going to look just as asinine as this one.

For the sake of future historians, here are those who voted against moving an Amendment to H.R. 910 out of House Energy and Commerce Committee, which said
SEC. 4. CONGRESSIONAL ACCEPTANCE OF THE SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY. Congress accepts the scientific finding of the Environmental Protection Agency that ‘‘Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global average sea level.’’.

Note that the bill didn't even say why these changes are taking place -- only that they are.
