    Default Climate Change on Trial...

    http://www.scientificamerican.com/bl...ant-2009-08-25

    In a bid to avoid regulations on the greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce wants to put the science of global warming on trial. "It would be evolution versus creationism," the chamber's William Kovacs, senior vice president for environment, technology and regulatory affairs, told the Los Angeles Times.
    But the chamber might do well to remember the outcome of the Scopes trial. Although the creationists won the court battle, they lost the culture war for a generation. As defense attorney Clarence Darrow quipped in that case: "We have the purpose of preventing bigots and ignoramuses from controlling the education of the United States," or for that matter its environmental policy.

    I had no idea that the 'climate change' debate had anything to do with Creationism vs Evolution. Some people need to go out and buy some Lincoln logs to play with at home.

    I thought that was kind of curious to but maybe they are referring to verifiable data vs. unverifiable data...

    I love seeing the desperate smearing and attacks on this study.

    In before 20 year old science. Just because they started 20 years ago does NOT mean these are old/outdated conclusions. It takes TIME to study things like this.
