A Conservative's Worst Nightmare: Global Warming AND Evolution

Cross-posted at

Conservatives in America have become pretty adept at shrugging off worries about global warming, and when it comes to evolution, well, they have their own ideas about how that works. However, this headline from National Geographic might cause some circuits to blow:

"Global Warming Is Spurring Evolution, Study Says"

Wow, what a catch-22! They can continue to ignore global warming but risk causing the body of evidence in favor of evolution to grow even faster, thus making it more difficult to sneak religious ideas in classrooms. On the other hand, if they try to reverse climate change, they'll have to actually admit that global warming is real and caused by humans.
