Yglesias observes:
Ron Brownstein has an excellent column on the globally unique position of the American conservative movement’s climate change denialism, a view that’s completely different from the posture outlined by mainstream conservative parties in the rest of the world.
As conservative commentator John Derbyshire has noted over at the National Review, the United States is pretty much alone in having a substantial number of people believing in Intelligent Design. (Derbyshire does not like ID.)
