John Holdren’s BBC Interview: Anti Science Repubs to “get illuminated.”

From the Guardian:

For the time being, (President Obama’s Science Advisor ) Professor Holdren faces a more sceptical Congress than he would like, and one that proposes a series of congressional hearings to assess the science of climate change.

Ben Santer showed how to stage a proper beat down in November, as evidenced by this video:
