In Governor Romney's acceptance speech at the Republican convention he ridiculed human-caused climate change. Didn't say he had questions about it. Ridiculed it.
His party's commitment to Christian Fundamentalism and the short-term profits of its hyper-rich patrons has required the Republican Party to adopt a platform profoundly hostile to scientific research, scienfific findings, and scientific method.
On climate change, pollution, overpopulation, abortion, contraception, the irrationality of "the market," and sociological research about everything from sex education to gun control and immigration control, the Republican Party has proven itself to be the enemy of rational consideration of the most important issues facing America and the world today.
Look at the constant barrage of anti-science threads in this forum posted by fools and tools. What percentage of them are, do you imagine, Romney supporters? 99% I'll wager.
As The Economist said, America can do better than Obama--but not with Romney, due primarily to his becoming a captive of the Republican Party's war not just on science but on rational thought itself.
