Good rule of thumb. When you’re writing admiringly about a total nutter like Jim Inhofe, you’re probably a total nutter yourself.

The top Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee [James Inhofe] has spent the past decade in the thick of Washington’s climate fight. He’s seen the back of three cap-and-trade bills, rode herd on an overweening Environmental Protection Agency, and steadfastly insisted that global researchers were “cooking” the science behind man-made global warming. This week he’s looking prescient. The more than 3,000 emails and documents from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) that have found their way to the Internet have blown the lid off the “science” of manmade global warming.

Oooooh, she even put quotes around “science.” It’s all made up!

Polls show a public already losing belief in the theory of man-made global warming, and skeptics are now on the offense.

And…? Polls also show about half of Americans reject Darwinian evolution. Not only is this an appeal to popularity fallacy, most adults understand that scientific truth isn’t determined through polls.

…if this Democratic Washington has demonstrated anything, it’s that ideology often trumps common sense. Egged on by the left, dug in to their position, Democrats might plow ahead. They’d be better off acknowledging that the only “consensus” right now is that the world needs to start over on climate “science.”

More snarky quotes! It’s all a lie!

“Common sense” isn’t science, moron. The consensus is real. And it’s ideology that blinds people like Kim Strassel to this.
