Inspired by today’s Post Fact Checker‘s debunk of Perry’s climate claims (Perry earned the highest “Pinocchio” rating).
I do believe that the issue of global warming has been politicized. I think there are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects. I think we’re seeing it almost weekly or even daily, scientists who are coming forward and questioning the original idea that man-made global warming is what is causing the climate to change. Yes, our climates change. They’ve been changing ever since the earth was formed. But I do not buy into, that a group of scientists, who in some cases were found to be manipulating this data.” – Rick Perry
Perry claims warming believers manipulate data for research money,
A claim so absurd it’s not even funny.
Just ask yourself which side has more dough,
And that should tell you where unethical scientists go.
Update: Read this excellent article on the subject, The worst thing that Rick Perry said … (DailyKos8/21/11).
