Beliefs Have Consequences

Aetiology has a summary of the HIV-denial trial, calling it HIV Denialism's Kitzmiller v. Dover School District, et al. Let us hope so. The trial is taking place in Australia, where Intelligent Design also has a foothold, but as you know the U.S. has its own home-grown Intelligent Design hucksters/HIV Denialists.

Shimmies to Tara at Aetiology for all her hard work to counter these dangerous superstitions about science and AIDS.

In other news, it seems that global warming is finally being taken seriously.

All of us have a right to our own opinions as to the seriousness of global warming. We don't have the right to our own science. - Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.)

UPDATED: The one-and-only Stranger Fruit sniff out a new "sciency journal" that really stinks.

it seem a bit incongruous that a a 90% certainty about man made warming is described as "likely".

Wouldn't it be more accurate to say it was "pretty darn sure"?

"90% likely" = "pretty darn sure"

But tell that to Sen. Inhofe, who's still blowing his "Liar! Pants on Fire!" horn.

I'm pretty darn sure about how his stupid ass is going down in history.
