Objections and Replies

(Left/Right) AGW is obviously a left/right issue—
Reply. Nature bats is an ambidextrous hitter and it bats last.

(Politizing) politicization interferes with addressing things—
Reply. Politicizing may never be good. Hard not to politicize, more so an issue that will require a political solution.

{Cheap} Advertizing one’s position is the cheapest form of political action.
