Rick Perry, (Unintentional) Global Warming Advocate

According to Ezra Klein's blog post, with his recent statement questioning the validity of climate change research it appears that Governor Perry has unleashed a wave of fact-checking that has confirmed just how shaky the ground is that the global warming deniers stand on. Among other things, the resulting publicity seems to be helping environmental advocates move past the imaginary "climategate" scandal from a couple of years back, which deniers have harped on as supposed evidence that global warming is some kind of partisan fraud.

So I just want to say, thanks, Governor Perry.
