A lot of accusations have been flying around, denouncing anyone who questions the modeling that “proves” that civilization is causing global warming. “Anti- science deniers,” they’re called, and lumped in with anyone who doubts the much-more conclusive evidence of evolution. They’re anti-science dumbbells.
I wonder where the same critics are now when it comes to the anti-science rejection by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
Obama said that accepting the Keystone XL pipeline would jeopardize America’s standing as the leader in the fight against human-caused global warming. But in so doing, Obama and Kerry reject the scientific conclusions of their own State Department.
Those findings confirm that the only demonstrable better alternative is to do what the environmental extremists want: To do nothing.
The political expediency of the timing and politics of this announcement are so transparent to need no explanation. They come as Obama plans to travel to Paris in the coming weeks for talks climate change, allowing him to bask in the “wisdom” of his decision among like-minded savants. It also supports the positions of the two leading Democratic Party presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

- John Kerry’s statement about why the decision is right.
