House Fight Heats Up over Global Warming

Joe Barton (R-TX) has called for an investigation into three climate scientists and their work on global warming. Science Committee chair Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY) called the investigation "misguided and illegitimate" and has demanded that Barton call off the probe.
