As Twitchy reported, the House Oversight Committee held a hearing Thursday on the fossil fuel industry and climate change, bringing in executives from Exxon Mobil, BP America, Chevron, and Shell Oil. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that whole regions of the U.S. will be unlivable by 2038 (βSome of us have to actually live the future that you are all setting on fire for us.β) and Rep. Cori Bush accused the executives of environmental racism and suggested they all resign βgiven each of your roles in these attacks on our humanity.β
For a palate cleanser, hereβs Florida Rep. Byron Donalds, who suggested the fossil fuel execs deserved an apology and that Attorney Merrick Garland should look into the intimidation tactics his colleagues were using on those who heat our homes and fuel our cars.
Seriously, give this a listen:

We need more of this. Its plain and simple truth, a sadly rare commodity in our nation, especially in DC.

We wonder if one word he said managed to seep into the craniums of any of his colleagues, even subliminally.
