YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN TROUBLE...:

What They Really Believe (THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN, 11/18/09, NY Times)

My argument is simple: I think climate change is real. You don’t?

...when you try to boil an issue down to its most basic point and you miss.

There really are two divergent views on climate change. Mr. Friedman and company believe that the natural status of the Earth's climate is stasis, that change to it is a function of human activity, and that this change must, therefore, be detrimental to life on the planet. Opponents believe that climate change is Natural, that steps to control human activity won't have much effect on that change, and that the change is unlikely to be catastrophic.

The sweet irony here is that it is obviously the Left that generally holds to the ideological viewpoint, while it is the Right that holds to the more scientific one. The Darwinists reject the idea that the climate evolves while the Creationists accept it blithely.
