(Newser) – Sen. Bernie Sanders used a hearing today on the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget to lay into those, including some Republican colleagues, who doubt the science behind climate change. “It reminds me in some ways of … the late 1930s,” said the Vermont independent. “During that period of Nazism and fascism’s growth … there were people in this country and in the British parliament who said ‘Don’t worry! Hitler’s not real! It’ll disappear!”
