Here’s An Impassioned Speech Defending Oil & Gas Execs At House Hearing
As Twitchy reported, the House Oversight Committee held a hearing Thursday on the fossil-fuel industry and climate change, bringing in executives from Exxon Mobil, BP America, Chevron, and Shell Oil.

Cori Bush accused the executives of environmental racism and suggested they all resign “given each of your roles in these attacks on our humanity.”
