The crazy show continues

After last night’s votes to slash unemployment benefits and deny Medicaid to people in need (and the follow-up votes that will take place today), you might have thought there would have already been enough wackiness for one week on Jones Street.

WRONG!

Actually, the fun is just beginning! Check out the following from the good people at the Sierra Club to see what’s on tap for tomorrow:

“John Droz, former real estate agent, fellow of the right-wing American Traditions Institute, and science advisor to NC-20 (the coastal group which backed notorious Sea Level Rise bill last year) will be addressing invited members of both chambers this Wednesday at 11:00 am in the auditorium at the General Assembly.   Mr. Droz’s presentation at the opening of the 2013-14 session raises the question as to if Wednesday’s presentation represents the face of science for the new legislature. The invitation to the talk, “Science under Assault”,  was sent to members by Rep. George Cleveland are reads in part:

“Colleagues: Some of our most pressing issues are in the environmental and energy areas. North Carolina’s policies on these matters should be based on genuine Scientific assessments. Unfortunately, in many cases this is not true. We have special interest groups and political agendas that get in the way.”

As of now, it is unclear if the presentation is open to the public.  However, it appears that the presentation Mr. Droz will be giving on Wednesday is already online at: http://www.slideshare.net/JohnDroz/science-under-assault Mr. Droz has a history of trying to discredit renewable sources of energy.  Many of his slideshow presentations can be found by clicking here and his resume can be found by clicking here.
