I don't read Conservative blogs too often, frankly it's painful. However, I did happen to see Small Dead Braincells latest post, debunking the threat of global warming. What is with the disconnect between conservatism and climate change? Why is it always the wingers that ignore the overwhelming majority of scientific evidence and instead scour the margins to find anything that questions the reality? Why the hostility?
The logic seems to view science as villian. I find it amazing that one's view on global warming seems to be a partisan affair. Isn't scientific study a domain that operates outside of personal bias? Oh sure, you can always find a few dissenters for every theory, but the totality overwhelms individual arguments and the theory gels. Yet, any article, any paper, that questions global warming is seized upon by wingers to support their flimsy arguments.
Even if you dispute the science, what about your own perceptions? Global warming has moved beyond the hypothetical, unfortunately you can actually see it. Therefore, an anti-climate change apologist now has to be two things- anti-intellectual and patently blind. I suppose the rationalized out is the "natural cycles" theory, which provides convenient excuse for ignoring the obvious. Those glaciers will be back, you just wait and see.
Newsflash, the earth is round, the earth is round!
