I was really struck by this:
Boxer said legislation on climate change will be her No. 1 priority as committee chairwoman. She plans to conduct hearings early next year with scientists, environmentalists and religious leaders who want to address climate change. She also will ask business leaders to testify about their efforts to limit greenhouse gases.
Religious leaders? What? Are we to include the local Swami? Maybe Pat Roberts and Billy Graham (though his kids are arguing about where he's going to be buried).
What does a religious leader have to say about the environment other than to take up our valuable public time arguing about intelligent design.
