Global Warming

After reviewing the evidence, Paul Krugman despairs of meaningful policy--
"there's  a strong streak in modern American conservatism that rejects not just climate science, but the scientific method in general.  Polling suggests, for example, that a large majority of Republicans reject the theory of evolution.  For people with this mind-set, laying out the extent of scientific consensus on an issue isn't persuasive --if anything, it just gets their backs up, and feeds fantasies about vast egghead conspiricies." New York Review of Books, Nov. 17, 2013
     Is this the way our world ends?
