You got to hand it to the Conservatives in the United Kingdom. Even though they’re nominally just politicians, they at least have some idea of what the word science means. Hell, they even appear to have mastered the ability to comprehend basic principles in science!
Sadly, our Prime Minister doesn’t understand science, doesn’t want to find out about science and just wants to ensure that everybody gets to breath that nice sooty ash you get when you burn coal. That’s progress, right Tony? No, actually. It’s just plain embarrassing, especially when you need Angela Merkel, Barack Obama and Xi Jinping to tell you you’re acting stupid.
