From Boing Boing, but Eli sorta remembers seeing it elsewhere. Thee and Eli sorta remember the cold fusion follies, with a refresher course recently when Martin Fleischmann passed on to the great calorimeter in the sky, but all the bunnies know that politicians have too much to do to bother their pretty minds staying up on the state of the science, and Mitt has the added burden of being from Utah with all the native pride that that entails, Now some, not Eli to be sure, would make a connection between what Romney said in a Washington Examiner interview (the other right wing rag in town the Washington Times is on critical life support with the passing of the Rev. Moon) and others surely might note that the remaining true believers believe themselves victims of a conspiracy.
As Stephan Lewandowsky might put it the beat goes on, and Mitt appears tobe humming along to the music on his iPod:
I do believe in basic science. I believe in participating in space. I believe in analysis of new sources of energy. I believe in laboratories, looking at ways to conduct electricity with -- with cold fusion, if we can come up with it. It was the University of Utah that solved that. We somehow can’t figure out how to duplicate it.Wanna bet?
