Science: Global Warming is "Arrogant"

This is a good clip from CNN during the last big storm just before Christmas. After the clip is Hot Air's very astute comments.

Arrogant? I’d call it that, but the problem with the global-warming movement and the Next Ice Age movement that preceded it is not arrogance per se but its advancement into a religion, where dissenters are cast as modern heretics and debate is rejected. It’s Galileo in reverse, where scientists who dispute both the models and the data lose patronage and funding, not because they’re wrong, but because they threaten the cash cow that the global-warming religion promises to researchers for the next couple of decades.

Both movements had the same goal: state control of energy production. That’s the arrogance that bothers me.

---It is just odd that those proclaiming Global Warming seem to completely disregard the science and commmentary from a non-Global Warming perspective. Right or wrong, it should at least raise some red flags.
