Despite IPCC Report, Global Warming Skeptics Persist

I suppose I should have known that the authoritative IPCC report on global warming, detailing the rock-solid scientific consensus that the phenomenon is real and is caused by mankind, would not put an end to the quibbling by politically motivated doubters.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), the ranking Republican member of the Environment & Public Works Committee, said late last week that the report is "a political document, not a scientific report, and it is a shining example of the corruption of science for political gain."

Even Pat Sajak, host of the popular TV game show "Wheel of Fortune," mocks the IPCC report on his personal web site.

It's going to take more than mere scientific evidence to force them to acknowledge reality.

Pat Sajak? What the...? Who cares what he thinks, I mean -- Wheel of Fortune is not a game that involves intellectual stretching.

What really scares me are the many politicians who refuse to reconize science when it smack's 'em in the nose.
