The creepiest moment of the day at Gore's hearing in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee came when Sen. Ben Cardin (D., MD) called, in the context of any new international global warming treaty, for international "support for uniform scientific information so that we all are operating with the same set of facts."
As Tom Nelson points out...
Gulp. Boy, that actual scientific method is really proving inconvenient.
Yes, yes it is. Still, here are some facts for you, Senator Cardin:
- The world may or may not be warming. Honestly, we don't really know.
- The world may or may not be warmer than at any time since the last ice age. But, honestly, we don't really know.
- If there is some warming trend, man may or may not be contributing to it. Honestly, we don't really know.
- Ah, fuck it—you get the idea...
I hope that helps, Senator...?
