[VIDEO] Stewart Blows Up on GOP Over Climate Change

Jon Stewart on Monday slammed a U.S House hearing regarding climate change, comparing the Republican-led session to β€œpushing a million pounds of idiot up a mountain.”

The Wednesday hearing featured testimony from John Holdren, President Barack Obamaβ€˜s adviser on science and technology. Stewart showed clips of Republicans Steve Stockman of Texas, Dana Rohrabacher of California and Larry Bucshon of Indiana doubting the effects of climate change.

Stewart labeled Holdren the hearing’s β€œSysyphus, charged with the impossible task of pushing a million pounds of idiot up a mountain.”

β€œHow far back to the elementary school curriculum do we have to go to get someone on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology caught up?” Stewart said. β€œDo we have to bring out the paper-machet and the baking soda so you can make a volcano?”
