This post replaces the incorrect adjective
"Anthropomorphic" in my previous post "Why
Democrats in Congress Fail To Support Climate
Change Legislation #2" with the correct adjective
"Anthropogenic," designating "an effect or object
resulting from human activity"
<http://bit.ly/11agJ5C>. Sorry for the bother.

Some subscribers to MathEdCC might be interested
in a recent post "Why Democrats in Congress Fail
To Support Climate Change Legislation #3" [Hake
(2013)]. The abstract reads:

**************************************
ABSTRACT: In my discussion-list post "Senator
Sheldon Whitehouse - Time to Wake Up: GOP
Opposition to Climate Science" at
<http://yhoo.it/100EVIY> I wrote: "Unfortunately,
Democrats in Congress are almost as unenlightened
as Republicans."

In response, a subscriber wrote to me: "In case
anyone missed this excellent dissection of
climate science opposition, here's why Demos are
apparently 'unenlightened': ['Frontline - Climate
of Doubt' (PBS, 2012)] at
<http://to.pbs.org/192dOxE>."

I list the ALL-STAR cast and their online
resumés: 19 *Believers* in Anthropogenic Global
Warming and 20 *Doubters* of Anthropogenic Global
Warming..

". . .American politics is being completely
defined by huge sums of money. [In 2008] we had
really a very broad coalition of people who
believed that we ought to move forward [on
climate change legislation] and do something. But
as the [2012} campaign and the fear built up,
people began to retreat. [Conservative
organizations] spent huge sums of money IN A
CAMPAIGN OF MAJOR DISINFORMATION. . . .[[My
CAPS]. . . . that had a profound impact. And it
has now made many people in public life very
gunshy because they're afraid of having those
amounts of money spent against them. . . . .
.There's nothing like a loss in an election. . .
. .[ as for Bob Ingliss of South Carolina,
defeated by BIG $$ from conservative
organizations]]. . . . . to promote fear in the
survivors. And that's exactly what happened in
the United States Congress."
- John Kerry, transcript PBS (2012)
