1. Inhofe demonstrates ignorance of science
2. Chu sounds like a winner!
3. More scientific nonsense from the Heiritage Foundation. They rival

4. Robert Higgs, admitting he "is not a scientist," tells us how to think.
5. Good for Richard Cizek,He sounds like another winner in the quest
to prevent ideology from trumping sc9ience.
