The Arizona Senate's Ad Hoc Committee on Climate Initiatives is holding a hearing tomorrow that garnered some harsh words about its chair, Senator Sylvia Allen in the online Arizona Guardian. They reference a press release in which Sen. Allen says federal plans to slow global warming are advancing "without consideration for scientific evidence" and that "we are going after problems that do not exist."
Two prominent state senators, Chuck Gray and Russell Pearce were added to the Ad Hoc Committee on Friday, suggesting a higher profile role for the committee.
Sen. Allen was in national spotlight earlier for her comments about the Earth being 6,000 years old so reporters are watching for more provocative statements.
