    • Date: 01/08/15
    • John Steel Gordon, The Wall Street Journal

    Climate-change ‘deniers’ are accused of heresy by true believers. That doesn’t sound like science. Are there any phrases in today’s political lexicon more obnoxious than “the science is settled” and “climate-change deniers”?  The first is an oxymoron. By definition, science is never settled.
