Blackout: Power Goes Off During House Climate Hearing with Obama Science Czar John Holdren — Lights blink on and off and stay off for almost a minute

Climate Depot Exclusive

Washington D.C.- A total blackout of a House Science committee occurred during a House Hearing on Climate Change and the EPA’s power plans. The lights went out and the room was plunged into total darkness at 10:23 AM in the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing was titled: Full Committee Hearing – “The Administration’s Climate Plan: Failure by Design” – 2318 Rayburn House Office Building Washington, D.C. 20515 | Sep 17, 2014 10:00am

The lights continued to blink off and on and then stayed off for nearly one minute. Everyone remained seated and the dark room descended into a quiet chatter among the crowd as they waited for power to be restored.

The irony of a climate and energy hearing being plunged into darkness was made even more ironic by the fact that Holdren has warned that the U.S. is ‘threatened” by what he termed “the hazards of too much energy, too soon.” Obama EPA’s Real Motive?!

  1. The lights have been out in Washington for years now. All thats left are a bunch of dim candles that only flare up when we the people threaten to blow them out. We need to blow a bunch of them out this November people.

  2. Winter cold is going to be the worst drain on power supplies. You can’t get much solar or wind energy with panels and windmills frozen over. Hydroelectricity is not much help on frozen rivers. That means coal and oil and nuclear all winter long…. What’s the over/under on the body count from EPA stupidity??

  3. The U.S. government “experts” have no understanding of power management issues like peak versus average demand, the need for “excess” capacity cushion, power distribution losses, and other technical matters. The EPA is run by sociologists, not engineers or scientists. A bunch of fanatical dumbkopfs.

  4. I remember back when they had hearings on what was then called Global Warming. They carefully planned the hearings on the hottest day of the year. Then turned the A/C off so everybody would look hot and sweaty on TV.
    Much of what happens in Washington is nothing more than political theater. Even if this was just a coincidence.

  5. This doesn’t quite cover the whole hearing, however. I’m more interested in what questions were presented and answers they gave. The lights are ironic but not the best type of proof of climate change or a lack thereof.
