    "It is difficult to identify another major political party in any democracy as thoroughly dismissive of climate science as is the GOP here." That's the pull quote from an important column in the National Journal today and it reveals an ugly, under-reported truth about American politics. Conservatives and conservative leaders the world over -- David Cameron's Tories in Britain, Nicolas Sarkozy in France, Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union in Germany, and so on -- do not shy from the science of climate change. In fact, there's only one democracy in the world where a prominent political party has made it a point to deny climate science: The United States. But why?

    There are no conservatives in Europe. Just less of the same communists.

    What landed us in our current situation had to do with a combination of the rise of the Tea Party, opportunistic and well-funded lobbies, and a specific major media outlet or two dominating the conservative voice at a particular point in time.

    you're article is titled as junk so I won't bother to read it.....why?

    because reps don't DENY global warming ( nice change of phrase, GW has become toxic) they just disagree as to how bad it is, why and what to do about it....

    I am sure thats to subtle for tree huggers dot com to understand or digest though...

    How does the viewership of FoxNews compare to the population of the US, or the percent of people who see AGW as fraud?

    All bullshit eventually collapses of its own weight. If you think you to have to manage informationn to perpetuate it, that proves my point.

    check this out-

    What landed GW adherents in their current situation had to do with a combination of the rise of the UN Eco. opportunists and their well-funded lobbies, and specifically the IPCC and major media outlets or five dominating the message at this particular point in time.

    The Republican Party is the best party that oil money could buy.

    I need oil and so do you.

    The people who are trying to tell us we don't are the sociopaths.
