    Yup, remember, Scientology is "s-c-i-e-n-c-e" also.

    Again, how billions of dollars are on the table to fund global warming research and prevention?

    There needs to be an amendment enforces a seperation science and state. It's just, if not more rediculous to enact laws based on science as it is to enact laws based on religion.

    Silly person. Who funds what research and what possible financial reasons a resesarch may have in researching and finding a specific conclussion only is an issue and worthy of discussion when they find that man made global warming doesn't exist or is greatly exaggerated. Else its just giving money to legitmate, honest, non-biased scientists that only care about getting the truth and are uncorruptable or manipulatable.

    Really? This is a pretty crazy statement here. It is not more ridiculous to enact laws based on science as it is to base them on religion. Science has many advantages, and many laws; including food and drug laws, are made based on science. I think the ridiculous thing is your statement.

    I agree. If these people wish to be taken seriously, they need to dispense with the idiocy.

    That's a good one!

    Do you, by any chance, have some LINKS with FACTS to support your claims?

    Or did this revelation come to you in a dream?


    Spare us the far-right denialist crap. I get why creationists don't like science but does the entire GOP base have to off the deep end of willful blind ignorance??

    What, "science", exactly are food and drug laws based on? I await with baited breath for the answer to that one. Is typhoid a scientific theory, or a fact?

    They have to do testing and developing of things. Do you think new drugs and such are just poofed into existence? There's a lot of biology, chemistry, and medical science going into the development and understanding of these things. Along with poisons, bacterium and the likes which can infect food, these specific types of toxins must be identified, controlled, and regulated. Then laws regarding the regulation, dosage, etc are created off of testing of the items for safe food or drug use. Jesus do you really think there's no science going into things? What about cars? The government makes rules on safety ratings based on...du du duuuuu.....SCIENCE. You do experiments, you make tests, you take statistics, and based off of that they make regulations and ratings. And that's just two examples. Wow. Just wow.

    Ignorance, you say? You're not aware of the billions of dollars spent on global warming research?

    Media: U.S. Should Throw Billions of Dollars at Global Warming
    What will new Congress do? Though emissions-lowering programs have failed around the world, the media continue to embrace plans for more regulation that could crush the American economy.

    How will the new Congress handle world pressure on the “dire” threat of global warming? If the media had their way, the United States would give in and join programs that are proven failures – costing taxpayers up to $180 billion per year in the process.

    California to Flush $600 Million Down Global Warming Research Center
    California's Public Utilities Commission voted 5-0 today to establish a new $600 million research center devoted to pretending there's such a thing as manmade global warming.

    Moonbattery: California to Flush $600 Million Down Global Warming Research Center
    We've looked it over, and even we can't quite believe it. There's $1 billion for Amtrak, the federal railroad that hasn't turned a profit in 40 years; $2 billion for child-care subsidies; $50 million for that great engine of job creation, the National Endowment for the Arts; $400 million for global-warming research and another $2.4 billion for carbon-capture

    A 40-Year Wish List - WSJ.com
    The answer has much to do with misunderstanding the science of climate, plus a willingness to debase climate science into a triangle of alarmism. Ambiguous scientific statements about climate are hyped by those with a vested interest in alarm, thus raising the political stakes for policy makers who provide funds for more science research to feed more alarm to increase the political stakes. After all, who puts money into science--whether for AIDS, or space, or climate--where there is nothing really alarming? Indeed, the success of climate alarmism can be counted in the increased federal spending on climate research from a few hundred million dollars pre-1990 to $1.7 billion oday. It can also be seen in heightened spending on solar, wind, hydrogen, ethanol and clean coal technologies, as well as on other energy-investment decisions.
