At no point were you or I really ever talking about the same thing, which was my fault. I brought up the quote about politics and science, with my focus being on the politics part. I'd have liked the quote better if it'd been "politics seems to have overtaken not killing polar bears"... or something.
I don't care about politics or global warming. In fact, I don't really give a **** about polar bears either. I just think killing them on purpose is stupid.
