Republicans Relaunch The War on Science

Via Marc Ambinder:

The GOP plans to hold high profile hearings examining the alleged “scientific fraud” behind global warming, a sleeper issue in this election that motivated the base quite a bit.

The War on Science is back on. Republicans are willing to promote false arguments against any facts which contradict their views. Will they take on evolution next to pander to their base?

    Science is all about examination. There is no set science. Einstein questioned Newtonian physics and ushered in the atomic age.
    Even if they end up being correct in their conclusions, having zealots like Michael Mann with questionable methods does not help science. It hurts it.

    The voters that went the effect of black-PR ads are now witnessing how we can return to the Dark Ages.  Such an insult on thinking and a referendum on television’s political ads.

    Simmer,

    The hearings being promoted by Republicans have nothing to do with examination. Those behind this idea have already demonstrated that they have no interest in looking at what has been established by scientific research. They are people in the pocket of the oil industry who wish to keep people from following the scientific consensus for financial gain.
