The Latest from Beltway Bob

"Several thousand scientists have come to the conclusion that climate change is happening. I don't think that's anything that is, quite frankly, among most people, in dispute anymore," press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters this week.

Except that now it's pretty clear that the data used to reach that conclusion is erroneous and cherry picked, and in fact the calculations and models used to manipulate that data is itself fallacious.

There's a reason people don't trust politicians and their spokesmen. Wonder what it is.
