Of course, that is denial of global warming and climate science that is an article of faith for Republicans, and most especially for their Tea Party masters.
Despite the irony of many climate change denialists characterizing climate science as a “religion,” it is the unflinching rejection of evidence, the alarmist rhetoric of “world government control” (have any of these people even been to a COP?), and ridiculous notions of massive, planetary-scale hoaxes perpetrated by grant-seeking scientists that requires faith bordering on a religion. The Tea Party has drunk the Kool-Aid, and demands that we all do too, if we are real Americans.
Two articles published recently highlight the point:
GOP Only Political Party in the World to Reject Climate Science? – from Zachary Shahan at PlanetSave.com.
John McCain: Lion of the Senate or GOP Lap Dog? – an article I recently wrote for Ecopolitology.org.
