Welcome to modern international conservatism, and the reason you hear that shrieking-spinning sound from the graves of Barry Goldwater, Winston Churchill, William F. Buckley and Edmund Burke. And lava spewing from the grave of Adam Smith. … Then segue from this proud British moment to our own Senate Science leader - James Imhofe.
But let’s be balanced. While this sort of drooling insipidity is typical of today’s mad entire-right… there is some of this also on today’s ditzy FARthest-left. Our struggle is not just with ISIS. It is far more with enemies of the Enlightenment that we have home-grown.
The crux here is not whether there are still questions to ask about climate change. Never let the denialist cultists make it about that! Always bring it back to their cult's absolute refusal to negotiate practical precautionary measures - to do more R&D or boost energy efficiency, JUST IN CASE the smartest people on the planet also turn out (amazingly) to be right, after all. Sensible skeptics would engage in such negotiation of TWODA...
... but the cult won't even do that. Why? Who benefits from obstructing even moderate improvements in efficiency?
The owners of the GOP. The coal barons and Saudi princes and Faux fear mongers. Funny coincidence that!
The hysterics from the internet thugs is in itself ample evidence that we are on the right track. The silliness of using the age of the original laws as a mocking point is especially stupid.

Well the link in this comment box works fine for me. You would think since Google is now tied to YouTube, Youtube links would work in Google+ on yer iPad. Now I am wondering how can I post photos in Google+ comments. It's a no brainer on Fakelook. Just click on the camera icon and bingo, uploaded.
We went to this restaurant because of the 19 (?) 5-star (!) reviews. The food wasn't excessively expensive but the lobster feast was so smothered in heavy sauces that you really couldn't taste anything but the sauce. This is the first meal in Iceland that has been disappointing.
