House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) today barred Republican members of the congressional delegation to Copenhagen for the U.N. “climate change” conference from participation in the official congressional press conference at Bella Center. Sources at the event told HUMAN EVENTS that Republicans were not initially informed of the event then were subsequently barred from participation. The Bella Center is the base for the U.S. Delegation in Copenhagen.
Around 3:45 pm local time today, Republican members of Congress and their staffs were rounded up for transport back to their hotels on busses just as the press conference began. They were not allowed to hold their own press conference.
Displaying more of the same type of “Climategate” behavior that has caused worldwide skepticism over the authenticity of the claims behind the anthropogenic global warming “science,” Pelosi is barring dissenting views in Congress from access to the worldwide press in Copenhagen.
One source said it’s a “delicate situation” right now but Republicans may be able to hold their own presser at the Bella Center tomorrow. Maybe.
