I'm surprised the article didn't mention the huge irony in accusing climate scientists of lying so they can get mean, pocket change compared to what the oil companies are getting away with? Last time I checked, scientists aren't exactly living large.

I wonder why Republican goes hand in hand with religion, greediness, (willful) ignorance and corporate corruption...shouldn't the religious have a 'higher standard' of moral? Or because the deeply religious tend to be unintelligent, to which they are exploited? It's a mystery to me!

Republicans have reformed themselves as the anti-elitist party. Which would be great, except they also redefined the word elitist. The elitist are no longer the wealthy or the super wealthy, but the intelligent. And that makes someone who devotes their entire life to attaining knowledge, aka scientists, enemy #1.
