One of those factions isn't major anywhere else in the world but Oz... a country dependent on its own extractive industries, and Canada which has the same problem.
It is among other things, almost completely unrepresented among the scientists who study climate science, or in the climate science data.
So what we can understand from this is that there is ONE faction that is ignoring the science in favor of the profits.
That is perilous, because when the climate changes sufficiently to generate the 2x4 event (the one that gets the attention of everyone because it is so far from normal that the general population gets scared) that faction will suffer such a loss of credibility and fall from grace that no man can foresee its return. Keep it up and there may be NO Republican, Conservative, Libertarian or Tea party for the next millennium and that'd be bad. Balance is better.
Rather than denying that science is legitimate conservatives should embrace it and look for ways to change things that involve shifting as little money and power to government as possible. THAT would be a win-win for everyone.
