Pathetic Politics and Lies: “Am I The Only One Who Noticed” (from Dan’s Wild Wild Science Journal)


Am I The Only One Who Noticed.. – Dan's Wild Wild Science Journal – AGU Blogosphere.

As Dr Neill deGrasse Tyson is fond of saying, you — and politicians — are entitled to their beliefs, but not to claim things as facts which aren’t, in this case, Huckabee’s

Just this week, one candidate [Huckabee] declared that volcanoes produce more CO2 than humans, a claim straight out of tin foil hat cyberspace. The truth Mr. Huckabee is that volcanoes produce 200 million tons of CO2, while we humans produce 26.8 BILLION tons.

No doubt that will make some people feel better, and is the charitable, Christian” thing to do.
