The Washington Post has an article
about Rick Perry's nutty quotes denying the science behind climate change. They actually do a decent job of stating the plain facts of the issue rather than a "both sides are equally valid" kind of story. That's refreshing.
Romney admits what scientists say, which is that it's a man made problem. Then they have this great quote.
Quote:“We’re not going to win a national election if we become the anti-science party,” John Weaver, Huntsman’s chief strategist, said in an interview Wednesday. “The American people are looking for someone who lives in reality and is a truth teller because that’s the only way that the significant problems this country faces can be solved. It appears that the only science that Mitt Romney believes in is the science of polling, and that science clearly was not a mandatory course for Governor Perry.”
I have bad news for John Weaver. Republicans are already the anti-science party. They're calling nuts like John Shimkus, who thinks the Bible story of Noah somehow disproves climate change, a leader on energy policy. People see the anti-science, anti-environment agenda of House Republicans. Voters are noticing and they aren't going to forget by 2012.
