Emerson suggests barring taxpayer funds IPCC

Representative Jo Ann Emerson (MO-R) joined legislation on Friday that would bar taxpayer funds for the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

In press release, Emerson calls support of the IPCC a “wasteful idea” and that “We ought to hold the publication of scientific data to the highest standard, especially when there is an implied endorsement of the quality of data on climate change by the government.”

Emerson cites criticism of the IPCC for fabricating scientific data on climate change.

U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-R), who presents Missouri's 9th Congressional District, sponsored the bill.
