First Evolution, Next Global Climate Change!

Recap of the February conference of American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Clips of Republican Rick Santorum highlighting the scary anti-science, anti-earth ideology of Republican party hardliners.

Short, excellent interview with Chris Mooney, science journalist, who places the blame on religion and libertarian economic ideology (which often go hand in hand due to the unholy alliance between business and the religious right dating back to the Reagan era).



  1. The fact that the only opposition to things like evolution and climate come the Right, as in the Christian Right is very telling...or should be anyway. People need to wake up and realize that religion is slowly eroding this country...and maybe not even that slowly anymore!

    1. There's also opposition to climate science from the libertarian and Objectivist parts of the right wing, as well as from the fundamentalist Christian part of the right wing. :(

  2. ReasonBeing, thanks for the comment. I couldn't agree more!
