He is missing a piece though. Politics to the right, and to many on the left too, has become a zero sum game. They don’t care if global warming is real, it must be opposed simply because Rush Limbaugh has labeled it a liberal idea.

Perhaps. There’s no question that environmentalists have a tendency to latch onto the latest scientific hypothesis (not theory) that supports their general worldview. But I don’t see attacks from the left on science per se. Only the right believes science has a political agenda.

Well, it’s got all those “facts.” Obviously a left-wing plot! :)

Thanks for the link. Well worth the visit.
