I like the happy sun.
I want to make congress watch this.
Whatever for? The reaction he gets when he points that blogger to the cited paper pretty much sums up how these discussions go.
If it helps to understand, consider the following. A good many people do not give a shit about the future, or their childrens or grandchildren. A smaller percentage actually like the idea of laying waste to the planet. But either way, most all of them realize that these views will be received poorly by the rest of us. So we have these foolish kinds of arguments.
See also discussions of race, gender, class, etc etc....
You're making the assumption that members of congress care about science. Most only care about the campaign contributions from fossil fuel companies. Their opinions go to the highest bidder.
You had me at Michele Bachmann.
While I appreciate Mr Potholer's proposed solution to the post-Clinton Orwellian forced-meme of "Fake News", I do not for a minute believe that the solution is going to be (or is even meant to be) a more open, skeptical, and diversely-informed population.
Rather, the solution is clearly corporate and government censorship; what's more, given that global governments are about to go hard neocon, Mr Potholer et al (whom I believe to be genuinely concerned about the topics they choose to discuss) are not going to like where this institutionalized culture of censorship leads us.
