The Republican War on Science

If you missed the "60 Minutes" segment this Sunday on the White House's campaign of censorship against climate scientists working for the government, the clip is available, as always, at Crooks and Liars.

I don't know what's more disturbing -- the dire conclusions of our top climatologists about the real dangers of global warming, or the chilling efforts of the White House to once again ignore those inconvenient facts and press ahead with their own predetermined conclusions.

Danged blogger wouldn't let me comment yesterday.

Yeah, I saw that show (man I hate that lull between NCAA games). Pretty crazy stuff.

For me, the supression by the gov't is more disturbing than the conclusions of the scientist. If anything, the gov't makes this guy look even more correct by suppressing his views. Legitimate debate never hurt anyone - except republicans.
