Michele Bachmann - Global warming not "a fact"

Perhaps if you wish real hard, it will go away. You have to see this to believe it. This is a debate involving Republican Congressional Candidate Michele Bachmann and Democrat Congressional Candidate Patty Wetterling. When Bachmann tries to tell the crowd that global warming isn't real, they start laughing. I don't think they're laughing with her.

As Al Gore pointed out in his movie "An Inconvenient Truth", this is what politicians, Republicans mostly, have been saying to cast doubt on global warming because it doesn't fit well with their political goals. A study of media reports found that nearly half of them said global warming was a "theory". A study of every scientific paper written on the topic finds that it is not a theory, but a fact.

I suspect more people have seen the movie than Michele Bachmann would like.
