The (un)Scientific American has an opinion on the US Senate Republican primary race in Indiana and challenger Richard Mourdock.
So what can we expect from the new GOP candidate when it comes to climate change and science? First note, however, that his Democrat opponent is also no stooge of the warmists’ hoax.
According to (un)Scientific American, Mourdock holds a Master’s degree in geology from Ball State University and worked in the energy sector for more than 30 years. I like him already.
Many accuse the Republicans of waging war on science. Geologist Mourdock scoffs at the notion that conservatives are doing this.
I think that’s silly. Galileo was attacked. Darwin was attacked. I don’t know that this is a political attack so much as a societal attack,” says Mourdock. “If it’s political, it’s because so much in our lives, and I’m not just talking science here anymore, seems to require involvement of government.”
global warming climate change, the (un)Scientific American writes:
Mourdock says the debate is not over on global climate change. He says that in science the debate never ends. ‘That is the most anti-scientific stance that you can take,’ says Mourdock.
‘It’s never over. One question leads to another, leads to another, leads to another.’
Mourdock says there will be a consensus of a majority on climate change, but his preference is that it be based on science that is questioned.
‘Politicians are always going to do a horrible job of assessing science when there is no clear, obvious outcome,” says Mourdock, “because science is being used to drive a political outcome.’
And it doesn’t take a rocket scientists to see that.
