Jon Stewart Hysterically Schools Congress on Climate Change

Jon Stewart just covered the Climate Change march and he doesn't spare you any zingers.

He inquired "do we really need a march to raise awareness about global climate change" which, "is an accepted scientific phenomenon accepted pretty much everywhere?"

Based on a recent line of questioning from members of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, the answer is evidently yes.

Indiana Congressman Larry Bucshon wins the prize for the most outrageous statement, stating climatologists "depend on the climate change to keep themselves publishing articles." Go figure: it turns out the Congressman's three biggest political contributors are Murray Energy, Koch Enterprises, and Peabody Energy-- three corporations with a vested interest in preventing environment regulations.
