Politics and Environment:

 

Somehow, and I haven’t a clue as to how to do it, we must remove politics from the science of our environment. There’s no way we can go forward and become a sustainable society when we have a powerful political party that doesn’t believe in the very forces that run our planet.

How could have so many well-educated American put so many scientifically illiterates in office at a time when Climate Change and many other environmental issues are upon us? This dismal scenario of the blind leading the aware cannot stand.

An Anti-Science Mania Takes Over the GOP "More than half of the incoming Republican caucus denies the validity of climate change science. Some 74 percent of Republicans in the U.S. Senate now take that stance, as do 53 percent of GOP in the House. " (March 21, 2011) Truthout | Fearless, Independent News and Opinion
