Republicans Dissolve Global Warming Committee

The Congressional Select Committee for Energy Independence and Global Warming is no more. The Republican House majority strangled it to death within hours of wresting control from the Democrats.

The Guardian reports the committee members didn't go away quietly:

The final report concludes with the question of whether the United States will respond to all the information that the committee has compiled during its lifespan on the climate and energy challenge:
Someday, our children and grandchildren will look back on the record of the Select Committee. That record will reflect a respectful and rigorous debate and an unprecedented understanding of the challenges before us. Whether or not they will see that this generation has taken the bold action required by these challenges remains to be seen.
