Once again, an argument broke out in the Senate about “extreme weather” caused by global warming.
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions slammed EPA Chief Administrator Gina McCarthy for pushing global warming regulations that will cost billions of dollars while being ignorant to whether or not extreme weather has gotten worse.
Senators on the Environment and Public Works Committee grilled McCarthy over the agency’s 2016 budget proposal which asks for $8.6 billion — $452 million more than the agency got in 2015.
The budget request includes $4 billion to reward states that go along with the EPA’s plan to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. The EPA’s plan to regulate carbon emissions has been heavily opposed by Republicans, including Sessions.
