    Without a doubt.
    But which side? Let's look at the evidence.

    One Side is offering the consensus opinion of real scienctist who submit their work and findings to rigorous scientific examination and offer it for peer-reviewed scientific journals.

    The Other Side offers psuedo "science" delivered as Op-Ed pieces in political magazines and political websites and NEVER submits any of their "work" for peer-reviewed scientific journals where any mistakes or faulty assumptions in data, methodolody, or conclusions as well as any attempts to grind a political ax are quickly exposed and dismissed.

    One Side presents sound science, which is not infalliable, but which does represent the overwhelming majority opinion of the best minds in the applicable fields.

    The Other Side presents cherry-picked data, ancedotal "evidence", bumper sticker slogans, and conspiracy theories that basically translate into: "Ain't got no use fer yer fancy book larnin' and pointy-haid 'pinions."

    So who does the evidence suggest is the side politicizing the scientific issue? Who do YOU trust to provide you with the information you need to make informed public policy?

    Tell ya what - when you can provide a rebutal from a peer-reviewed scientific journal - get back to me. Until then, I'll continue to snicker at the bafoonery of trying to rebut science with political commentary.

    But I'll think I'll be long gone before anyone produces THAT. But if they CAN - I'm listening.

    Consensus and opinion aren't science, Buckwheat....They're political.

    Nice to see one of the AGW moonbats admit that their born-again Luddite shit is all political, no matter how obliquely , though.

    Climate science HAS been politicized in the press.

    If folks instead paid attention to peer-reviewed papers, the science would speak for itself.
