Why Bother With Science?

The Kentucky legislature held a hearing the other day about global warming. The featured speakers: James Taylor of the Heartland Institute and the ubiquitous Lord Monckton:

Before the hearing, Gooch said he called the Heartland Institute once he decided to address global warming and asked for any skeptical experts it might send. Scientists weren’t necessary, he said.

“Well, I mean, where are we going to get scientists?” Gooch asked. “We’re limited here in Kentucky to what we can do. I don’t know how we’d necessarily get scientists to come here.”

That certainly simplifies the discussion. (Hat tip to Malcolm, who is from Australia, where the seem to have scientists.)

  1. Gee, how do they run universities in Kentucky without scientists? And don’t federal agencies like Fish and Wildlife use a few?
