George Will, the Republican Debate, Pope Francis, Ronald Reagan, Jon Huntsman and Upton Sinclair

I disagree with George Will on every topic except when he writes about baseball.  When it comes to baseball, George Will is clearly an expert.

When it comes to science, Mr. Will should listen to the Pope. Mr. Will writes an article in today's Washington Post titled, "Pope Francis’ fact-free flamboyance"

The only thing that is fact-free in the article is Mr. Will's lack of logic and his inability to address science in any cohesive fashion.

It is a absolutely mind-blowing that NONE of the current Republican candidates believe in climate change!  Even the legendary neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson does not believe in climate change.  I can certainly understand why Donald Trump and the others do not believe in climate change.  It makes sense when you think about that in the context of what Upton Sinclair stated:

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” 

The last presidential Republican candidate that believed in BOTH climate change AND evolution was not even a rounding error in the Republican primaries.  When former Utah Governor tweeted, "To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy", it was a guarantee that he would never get the nomination.

Even the Holy Patron Saint of the Republican Party Ronald Reagan once stated, worried about what man has done and is doing to this magical planet that God gave us."

 When we will hear a Republican presidential candidate state they believe in science such as Jon Huntsman or even at the very least, agree with Ronald Reagan?
