BUT THE SCIENCE IS REFUTABLE!  DIDN'T YOU KNOW THAT IT'S TOO POLITICIZED TO BELIEVE?  DIDN'T YOU KNOW THAT THERE'S REALLY NO SUCH THING AS GLOBAL WARMING BECAUSE THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY SOMETIMES HAS LUNCH WITH AL GORE????

WAKE UP AND SMELL THE PROPOGANDA!  THOSE FILTHY COMMIE SCIENTISTS ALL WANT US TO GIVE UP OUR GASOLINE AND HATE AMERICA!!!

/the last 2 Bill Maher shows' worth of GOP punditry (I'm talking fucking Congresspeople, here)

It amazes me that such lack of thought runs rampant our government. I mean, by this point I expect it, but... It's like a sunrise, breathtaking in it's beauty, but with stupidity.

Human stupidity is the only infinite resource.

Didn't Naomi Klein say (in jest) somewhere that maybe the reason the real elite don't seem to give a shit about Global Warming is because they think they, personally and as a class, will be able to dodge anything nature throws at them?

If this were the case it wouldn't be surprising to see things being done that look token efforts when you consider the scale of the problem, but sensible if your goal is to... protect a privileged few?

Sounds about right.

Also, there is now a "debate" in the UK about including "faddish science" concerning climate change in the national cirriculum.

Bill Maher said he's going to stop calling it "Global Warming" because all the deniers are saying the dipshit phrase, "See, it's COLD! Where's your GLOBAL WARMING NOW?"  So now he's calling it "Climate Change."

So have I, but I think for people who were aware of the issue in the 80s and 90s, they tended to call it global warming.

The UK seems well on its way to destroying the Humanities, as a subject.  Between this and the Empire bullshit being handed down by Niall Ferguson we're gonna have a little generation of sociopaths running around in 20 years.

I just looked up Niall Ferguson, the first thing I found was this quote:

Quote
"It's all very well for us to sit here in the west with our high incomes and cushy lives, and say it's immoral to violate the sovereignty of another state. But if the effect of that is to bring people in that country economic and political freedom, to raise their standard of living, to increase their life expectancy, then don't rule it out."

I dont think Ive ever heard someone in greater need of a swift kick to the jaw.

Since the Tories got in, Michael Gove, the education sec, has launched pretty much all out war on schooling in the UK.  In fact, on that note, I need to post something hilarious in Apple Talk related to our education system.

Yeah, apparently the UK is going to be proactive on history change revisionist history.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/may/30/niall-ferguson-school-curriculum-role

Quote
Jerry Brotton, professor of Renaissance Studies at the University of London, said he thought Ferguson's working on the history curriculum was "an outrage" and the story of western domination "a misrepresentation of history". Brotton said: "It's an ideology. It is typical of him. It's another revision of empire – getting empire back in by the back door."
