This Was Predictable
According to The New York Times, Creationists are using the growing criticism of the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis to push their theories:
It looks like they had the same reaction as the people at the next table I blogged about a few years ago:
Critics of the teaching of evolution in the nation’s classrooms are gaining ground in some states by linking the issue to global warming, arguing that dissenting views on both scientific subjects should be taught in public schools.
Yet they are also capitalizing on rising public resistance in some quarters to accepting the science of global warming, particularly among political conservatives who oppose efforts to rein in emissions of greenhouse gases.
When the evidence is inadequate, maybe it makes sense to admit it.
“I believe science teaches us that human-caused global warming is an urgent crisis.”
“You mean if it's either not a problem or can be fixed easily, it proves science is false?”
On the other hand …
If anthropogenic global warming does turn out to be important, my fellow wingnuts should be prepared for a reaction in other direction. We should try to not tie ourselves to an uncertain dogma.
