Ideological warfare

They ain't slackening the pace in the lill'ol USofA. Michelle Malkin is having a go. Google pages are now in excess of 20 million. And the controversy has even reached the hallowed portals of the EU parliament. There, Dutch economist Hans Labohm told a hearing that "climate change has always been with us and always will be".

A member of the influential IPCC, Labohm said, "We are told that temperatures and sea levels are rising and the polar caps are melting. That is the bad news. The good news is that none of it is true." Meanwhile, Russell Gold in is WSJ blog says the debate over global warming is now not a scientific disagreement or even a political debate. It's all-out ideological warfare.

He's dead right, of course – which makes it all the more puzzling that the supposi-Tories and the Scarygraph are on the wrong side.
