To listen to the green lobby you would think that the only people who twist and politicize science are the Bush administration and the evil tools of Big Oil (like Kos?).
Roger Pielke Jr, no friend of the administration or big oil, lists 17 different examples where the science has been misrepresented in favor of environmentalist-favored positions in the field of global warming and disasters alone. He calls it a “comprehensive and pathological politicization of science in the policy debate over global warming.”
Now how are journalists going to know this without the presence of a skeptical voice?
