Why Climate Change Denial Is Biggest Conservative Lie of All –

Interesting and hard-hitting article on climate change and global warming from a Jewish perspective. It's time that the deniers face the music and stop distorting the reality of what is happening around us. Click title for link. From the article:
Are conservatives ever right?
They were wrong about slavery, wrong about women’s suffrage, wrong about segregation, wrong about gay rights. They were wrong about trickle down economics – it’s never worked and never will, as the ballooning wealth gap proves once again. They were wrong about Iraq (where are those WMD’s, anyway?) and wrong about Vietnam before it. They’re even wrong about evolution (in which only 43% of Republicans believe).
But no error, no misguided application of ideology, no deception is more damaging than the web of lies that conservatives have spun about climate change.
