Truth be told left-wingers will try to ride most any popular cause in order to achieve their political ends.

Oh - as opposed to right wingers - who NEVER EVAR drag out the flag, fife and drum when it suits them.

While it's all very big of you to cross the Rubicon on climate change - the truth is it has been a pathetically ridiculous smear of the reactionary bloc to accuse anyone and everyone who acknowledges that a skyrocketing level of CO2 very likely has forcing effect on the underlying equation as being somehow in the thrall of leftist mania. The incredible bullcrap that has been spouted about global warming by the right wing press is one of the greatest con jobs in living memory. By squawking about "balance", they have managed to inflate the crackpot viewpoint a hundred fold. The proportion of heterodox to orthodox is miniscule. Having one denialist talking head up against a realist makes it look like a 50/50 thing. It isn't. Far from it.

Get this through your skulls, wingnuts: your pathetic politics bears NO RELATION to the underlying science. If a sentient, science-literate visitor from another planet was given the evidence and asked to make a non-aligned judgment you wouldn't find a bookmaker on Earth who would be willing to make a market on the outcome. Now, none of this suggests exactly what to do about the situation - but the baseline proposition is becoming increasingly clear. CO2 is having a tangible effect. No matter what the right wing noise machine says.
