Science and the Bush Administration

CNN's got a story about how scientists feel like they're being marginalized by the Bush Administration. Read it here.

I just don't get how politics overrides science in such fundamental ways with these nutjobs. What gives Bush and other Republican lawmakers the right to think that they know more about global warming, for example, than the scientific community, who overwhelmingly disagrees with them? What gives the Administration and their congressional cronies the right to ignore the science that they don't like?

What gives here?
