Occam's razor cutting through climate change

I like this infographic a lot. It's really hard to argue ridiculous conspiracy theories on the facts, since in general they're based on an emotional reaction to distrust and ideological bias. Facts alone don't fare well against that, but when framed properly can find the traction they need.

Note: I cannot find the original artist for this. It's been copied everywhere, and I like to give credit where it's due. Google reverse image search didn't help much either. I got this from the OWS site, but they acknowledge it's not original with them either. Any help is appreciated.

Apparently, and the details are largely secret at this time, various Right Wing Christian forces went to work to pressure Koman into dropping its funding for Planned Parenthood, and Komen dutifully caved. They either made up or pulled out of their non-profit asses a rule that said that they can’t fund agencies that are under investigation by local, state, or federal agencies. Then, they interpreted this sham inquirey in Congress as an “investigation by a federal agency” which it is not.

And, thus, under the guise of following their sanctimonious rule, Komen stopped funding help for cancer screening and other breast cancer related services to countless poor and underprivileged women.

Huh... Reel Playmakers just added me to their circles... I think I've watched maybe one American football game in my life and I made a point of doing it for the cultural experience.
