Winter of 2007 - another irony - Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality
On Saturday, SNL invented an ironic situation for laughs regarding global warming and the events of this winter.
Today, Congress one-upped SNL by cancelling a "global warming" conference due to the winter storm that now is pounding the east coast.
The following notice and weather report appears tonight on Drudge:

The Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality hearing scheduled for Wednesday, February 14, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. in room 2123 Rayburn House Office Building has been postponed due to inclement weather.

I think Will Rogers once commented that his little jokes never hurt anybody, but everytime Congress makes a joke its the law.
By the way, where is the Constitutional authority for a Congressional "Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality?"
