What global warming?

If you were to stand before an oncoming tidal wave and refuse to believe in it with all of the sincerity of a holocaust denier, it would have very little impact on the timing of your demise. Natural forces are not swayed by beliefs.

I have encountered many republicans that insist with red faces and waving arms of late that global warming doesn't exist. Moreover, attempts to point out persuasive information is like having a religious argument with them, which is to say it is treated as a conflict where there is no good proof either way.

What I am most interested in knowing is why are so many global warming deniers republican? How did the laws of thermodynamics, chemistry, and atmospheric science come to be partisan in nature?

Is Rush Limbaugh filling conservative hearts with the expectation that global warming pays attention to opinion polls?

So you don't think global warming is real?

Big deal. Too bad your grandchildren will suffer from it anyway, especially if there is political pressure for foot dragging.
