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.
