Senate Republicans Admit Climate Change Is Real, But Deny Humans Cause It
They even cite "biblical evidence."

In a surprise move, US Senate Republicans joined Democrats and went on record Wednesday acknowledging that climate change is real.

The symbolic amendment, attached to a controversial bill authorizing construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, was approved 98-1 after Senator James Inhofe, seen as the top climate change denier in Congress, announced he was supporting the legislation.

Inhofe however strongly rejected any suggestion that human activity was responsible for climate change.

1. Well, it does have a well-known liberal bias.

2. Hitler's Germany created "Nazi Science" to explain why the Aryan Race was superior to all others.

 

Needless to say, this "science" was based entirely on nonsense and existed solely for propaganda purposes.

Modern-day Conservatives are engaged in some similar shenanigans, in which they redefine "science" to say what they want it to say. "Scientists" for the tobacco industry tell us smoking is harmless, "scientists" for the oil industry tell us that leaded gas is harmless and that global warming is fiction.
