"I don't perceive them [Tea Partiers] as amenable to reason over [global warming] GW, which is what I'm interested in for public purposes. They have made a fundamental error:(It's down in the comments.)
1. I don't like govt
2. GW, if true, requires action from govt
3. Therefore GW is false
This makes them idiots. Although I doubt [Paul] Ryan is an idiot on this matter, instead my best guess is that he is dishonest."
