The Real War on Science

    Just with regard to so called man-made global warming it is the Democrats and the liberal establishment that are anti-science. Totally ignored in the “global warming” debate is the fact that for the last 10,000 years or so the earth has been warming, thirteen degrees C. or so.

    Facts as Al Gore so inconveniently ignores part of a liberal paradigm totally irrational.
