Republicans Opposing Science . . . boggles the mind

Right now I’m working on a longer piece of journalism about how the high speed rail project is going to affect Whatcom County, but in the meantime I ran across this video:


It always amazes me when Republicans disavow science. As if merely passing a resolution saying that toxic substances are just fine in our drinking water magically makes it pure. Or that abstinence-only education really will work this time, despite generations of failure. If you can test something, quantify it, and identify cause and effect, why would you dispute it?


Great snark here. Enjoy. I promise a more thorough post Monday.
