  2. House hearing: Moniz says DoE looking at cellulosic ethanol for transportation — more technology that is nowhere near ready for prime time.

  3. House hearing: Asked for scientific basis 4 Obama goal of 17% CO2 cuts by 2020, McCarthy says it’s international in nature — i.e., made up.

  4. House hearing: Morgan Griffith (R-Va.) says carbon capture technology (horse) should come before EPA CCS mandate (cart).

  5. House hearing: Moniz claims effects of global warming were predicted decades ago… was the ‘pause’ predicted too, Ernie?

  6. House hearing: Asked by a Dem, McCarthy refuses to say that EPA power plant rule will accomplish anything for the climate.

  7. House hearing: Moniz says his Obama admin colleagues would be pleased to answer questions — so why didn’t they show at the hearing?

  15. House hearing: Rep. McKinley says shutting down US coal now would only reduce global CO2 by 0.2%.

  19. House hearing: EPA claims to avoid endangering grid reliability — not what Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said last year.

  24. @ddonigernrdc @jwalkenrdc Significant CCS is not physically, financially or politically possible.

  25. House hearing: Gina McCarthy says many states reducing GHG emissions — is it cooler yet? Certainly not warmer.

  26. House hearing: Moniz claims CCS is demonstrated technology — NO, IT IS NOT. Enhanced oil recovery is not the same as CO2 storage.

  36. House hearing: Funny… Moniz cites Fisker as example of DOE loan success … thinks better of it and runs away.

  37. House hearing: EPA chief: “We’re delivering fuel efficient vehicles” — blurring of lines between gov’t and industry.

    1. House hearing: Moniz says ‘every ton of CO2 emitted you can check it off against our children and grandchildren’ Embarrassing!
