I can understand why these big issues become political. I understand why abortion is a political issue. I get that. I understand why the war in Iraq is a political issue. And I can certainly understand why freedom of speech is a political issue. What I don’t understand is how global warming became a political issue. Global warming, it seems, is an ecological issue. Whether it’s true or not, it’s something that’s debated among experts which are the scientists. So why is this now becoming a political issue? Why are political pundits talking about it? I don’t get it. Liberals are saying it’s true; conservatives are saying it’s being blown out of proportion. Well, isn’t the best way to settle the issue is to go straight to the experts, namely the scientists who study the global effects?
Please tell me! Why is this a political issue?
