Utah freshman Congressman Chris Stewart got an earful -- at a town hall meeting, in Davis County -- as he accepted a petition, demanding he accept man-made climate change as reality.

But Stewart still insists, the science on the controversial issue is not yet settled.

For one thing, he wonders why so many groups continue to seek federal funding for global warming research, if there's no longer any question about what's causing it.

Congressman Stewart was recently name the Chair of the House Subcommittee on Environment.
