Janice is wrong, indeed science or what pretends to be science has
been politicized, explaining much of the global warming deniers'
attempts to frustrate the process of science. And indeed, this has
made science untrustworthy, not just because it is based on flawed
premises, but because it is not supported by the evidence.

Science, has shown clearly, that global warming is real and human
caused and while Janice may suggest that since this has led some to
propose political solutions that thus science has become politicized
and thus untrustworthy, she remains unable to show what is wrong with
the science, instead she is relying on truely untrustworthy sources to
make her poorly argued case.

Call me naive... The alternatives seems to be worse.
