"Virtually No Republican In Washington" Accepts Climate-Change Science

Holy crap...it's true.

In fact, the only reason Politifact rates Brown's claim 'Mostly True' rather than 'True' is that they suspect that a fair number of Republicans are simply lying to secure election; they know better, but can't admit it without political consequences.

The GOP is running its own insanity emulator.

Imagine that there were economic arguments for the conclusion that the welfare state causes laziness and dependency that were as strong as the climatological arguments for anthropogenic climate change...  Imagine what the GOP's position on that would be...  What are the odds that they'd be insisting on epistemic caution bordering on skepticism in that case?
