"If you like your plan, you can keep your plan." I guess in the minds of Democrats and liberals if you're going to tell a lie, tell a big one. As I pointed out last week, in the denial of John Gruber, Democrats told a bunch of demonstrable lies. And I think the AGW hoax has in common with the Ferguson troubles the problem that some people will believe what they wish to believe regardless of the facts. So if you're sitting there thinking that just because Al Gore is one of the greatest prevaricators on the face of the planet that doesn't mean Global Warming isn't happening, I see that not as a mindset but a symptom.

"Antarctica's ice paradox has yet another puzzling layer. Not only is the amount of sea ice increasing each year, but an underwater robot now shows the ice is also much thicker than was previously thought, a new study reports." - Becky Oskin @ livescience
There can be no debate. The elite liberal intellectual class isn't comfortable with giving people the facts and letting them draw their own conclusions. Besides, it gets in the way of their appetite for power.
