The Congressional hearing on global warming was postponed last month due to a snow storm that left the mid-Atlantic area blanketed in snow. Here are the details I wrote about in a post last month:

The Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality hearing scheduled for Wednesday, February 14, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. in room 2123 Rayburn House Office Building has been postponed due to inclement weather. The hearing is entitled “Climate Change: Are Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Human Activities Contributing to a Warming of the Planet?”

The postponement landed the meeting on today’s schedule. And as if on cue…here comes the snow.

SNOW ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST FOR NORTHERN CENTRAL AND WESTERN MARYLAND…THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA NORTHERN AND NORTHWESTERN VIRGINIA…AND MUCH OF THE EASTERN WEST VIRGINIA PANHANDLE…

I live about 40 miles north of Washington, and it’s currently snowing with an inch or so already on the ground. It isn’t supposed to stop until mid-afternoon.

Al Gore effect, huh?

Update: Carbon offsets … for farts? Yep.
