Sen. Ben Cardin - burn the heretics.

Thankfully we don't have a monopoly on all the stupid assholes in politics here in the UK, as this gem shows.
The creepiest moment of the day at Gore's hearing in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee came when Sen. Ben Cardin (D., MD) called, in the context of any new international global warming treaty, for international "support for uniform scientific information so that we all are operating with the same set of facts."
Now forget a moment the Global Warming debate here this Sen. is stating that on scientific points everyone states the same viewpoint, uses the same data.

So what happens when the next scientist who comes up with a theory - like say the Earth not being the centre of the universe - that go's against the majority view. 

Its scientific argument/debate that resolves issues, finds flaws with theory's and advances the march of science. 

My sympathies with the poor voters of Maryland who voted this Luddite into office. 

Maybe he will advocate burning the books of descenting voices next, or maybe having the a scientific inquisitor to remove the funding of latter day heretics.
