    When Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) pressed EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy on whether past climate change “models” predicting how fast temperatures would increase have turned out to be accurate, she couldn’t provide an answer. It was only one part of a tense exchange on climate change between McCarthy and the GOP senator during an Environment and Public Works Committee meeting on Wednesday.

    Sessions also asked McCarthy about data that he claimed indicates that the moisture content of soil around the world might be even greater than in the past. But when the EPA chief again said she didn’t know what he was talking about, Sessions raised his voice a few decibels.

    “Well, you need to know! Because you are asking this economy to sustain tremendous cost and you don’t know whether or not the soil worldwide is more moist or less moist?” Sessions said.

    When pressed about the decrease in hurricanes, McCarthy replied, “I cannot answer that question. It’s a very complicated issue.”
