Because it is a reality according to science. And this particular conservative does not reject reality.


What needs discussed is the simple fact that the reality denialists may be in charge politically, but they don't necessarily represent anything but bought and paid for large corporate interests.

In many cases the denialists don't even believe their own pile of crap. They simply throw it at the wall and see what sticks.

Great example here:

I AGREE


Inhofe is not much different. Even he is not so stupid to think throwing a snowball in Congress refutes AGW. But he flings that just like his BS rhetoric....because he is bought and paid for.

Inhofe's argument is indeed stupid.

OK so maybe the title should be Monsanto apologist? advocate? Shill?

The point of course is completely unaffected by the man's job title.
