There's a glaring example of the "War on Science" in a Scientific American article: Fake Addendum by Contrarian Group Tries to Undo U.S. Government Climate Report

John Abraham wrote:
"It's not an addendum. It's a counterfeit," said John Abraham, an associate professor at the University of Saint Thomas in Minnesota who studies clean power sources. "It's a continued effort to kick the can down the road: A steady drip, drip, drip of fake reports by false scientists to create a false sense of debate."

Where I'm coming from is that facts are facts. Some examples of climate change in Alberta are:
- pine beetles are no longer controlled by cold winters, and are now the scourge of the forest
- many species of plants and animals are "moving uphill" in the mountains, because their preferred temperature range is moving to higher elevations
- the oldy moldy pictures showing how the glaciers have been receding during the 20th century
- bird migration patterns are changing.

Those examples are facts.

The politics comes in, when our industry and government promote the mass mining and sale of oil and tar-sands. They tell us how jobs are more important than honey-bees, and economy is more important than rivers.
