U.S. Politicians Vote Against Science

For the rulers of the world’s most powerful country, science is just a matter of opinion ...

On April 6, three members of the U.S. House of Representatives proposed this amendment to a bill under discussion:

Congress accepts the scientific findings of the Environmental Protection Agency that climate changes is occurring, is caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for public health and welfare.

The amendment did not propose any action— it simply allowed members of the House to state whether or not they agree with the overwhelming scientific evidence.

The amendment was defeated 240 to 184.

Scary…

It proves how decadent the bourgeoisie are. If they want a majority vote on something, they’ll ensure that it happens.

Canada’s elites don’t have a problem with American politics. Just ask John Manley and Canada’s CEOs. They still want greater integration between the two countries.
