Below I have shared my Email sent to the Whatcom County Council on Feb. 2nd, 2014, asking them to please listen to last weeks testimony given by Environmental Scientist, Jay Lehr, PhD, in Olympia, WA, at the “Senate Energy, Environment and Telecommunications Committee” hearing. It was brought to my attention that regrettably, State Senator Kevin Ranker walked out prior to Dr. Lehr’s testimony. This not only shows the closed mindedness of State Senator Ranker, but also how he did a huge disservice to those of us whom Senator Ranker is obligated to represent.

Honorable Council Members,
Last week State Senator Erickson’s “Energy, Environment and Telecommunications Committee,” invited Dr. Jay Lehr to testify. This is what he had to say, “Why Washington state would consider legislation to reduce CO2 emissions is something I can’t figure out,” Jay Lehr, PhD, told members of the state Senate’s Energy, Environment and Telecommunications Committee on Wednesday morning.
The link I’m sharing with you is Dr. Lehr’s testimony and I ask that each of you take a moment to listen to this testimony. The media is flush with lots of “sky is falling” commentary from activists and scientists who do not specialize in climate, but very little from the other side. Dr. Lehr’s testimony not only speaks to the myth of AGW, it also has the deep ring of common sense. Shortly after Dr. Lehr’s testimony, there is a brief Q&A between Dr. Lehr and the State Senators…the Q&A is even more enlightening than his testimony.
The biggest winners are the people and businesses who have made it their life’s work to get precious tax payer dollars for projects based on fixing AGW. The biggest losers are the middle class and the poor who have taken a huge hit in the loss of jobs and their purchasing power.
