McCain Recognizes Global Warming

Apparently there is at least one Republican who acknowledges science, as John McCain comes out supporting action to stem the greenhouse gases at the core of global warming.

They've got a candidate that recognizes both evolution (albeit with "hand of god" poetry added on for show) and global warming. No wonder the fundamentalists are threatening to sit this one out.

Hmm, I'm uncomfortable with this statement:

"Apparently there is at least one Republican who acknowledges science, as John McCain..."

To be fair to the minority of scientists (ie, to avoid calling their viewpoints /not/ science), you probably shouldn't word it like that.

Just sayin'.

Of the people who deny evolution or global warming, a subset of them seem to deny science entirely, and a subset of THEM are Republicans. So seeing John McCain acknowledge both implies he doesn't deny science outright. This says nothing about the group of deniers as a whole.
