    Laurence Lewis has nailed many topics here for years.
    This election, I don't agree the GOP war on science could be "the greatest political weapon".
    Sadly, there is a difference between scientific fact and political truth. Paul Krugman can't even get agreement on the historical fact that reducing the deficit during an economic crisis has been proven wrong. He has the facts. He's convincing. Yet there's the Paul Ryan budget.
    Yes, it's a fact that climate change is "one single issue of such import and magnitude." No, it could not by itself recast the entirety of our national political dynamic. At least, not in the way Lewis is implying.
    Should this be part of the Democratic arsenal on the campaign trail? Yes. Certainly. Of course. Is it the "single issue" that could politically change everything?
    No.
