Oil Spills and Climate Change not Man-made: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)

New Proposed GOP Logo: Designed by Marco Rubio

Alternative GOP Logo

This is a very dangerous trend ... very troublesome:

May 20, 2014 | No longer content just to claim to be “skeptical” of scientific findings they find disagreeable, Republican politicians have moved on to a more alarming anti-science strategy: confuse the public about what science even is, claiming it’s just someone’s opinion and ignoring the importance of evidence.

Marco Rubio’s recent remarks about climate change epitomize this new era, with conservative politicians deciding that “science” is whatever they say it is.

Allow me to extrapolate on this thought process:  Imagine today's GOPers (Rubio, et al) questioning science about the predicted results from the WWII atomic bombs that were to be dropped on Japan by saying it was just a "scientific opinion..." Whoops.

I wonder where are any reputable GOP scientists in the country??? Whoops.

Quick answer to that question: A new study by the Pew Research Center finds that the GOP is alienating scientists to a startling degree. Why??? 
  1. Only six percent of America's scientists identify themselves as Republicans
  2. Fifty-five percent call themselves Democrats.
  3. Nine percent of scientists said they were “conservative.”
  4. Fifty-two percent described themselves as “liberal, and 14 percent saying they are very liberal.” 
GOPers like Rubio may not be ready for the nearest “AA” meeting, but surely they are ready for my newly-designed WORAN network.

What is that: Wipe Out Republican Afflictions Now
