We, in France, hear that The USA, whatever that means, still disputes the science of climate change...

Well, certain people in the United States dispute it, like George Dubyah, oil industry lackeys, and Don Young. Oh, and those folks who listen to right wing radio or watch FOX News.

But as a group, no, we don't. Unfortunately, all it takes is one idiot spouting that nonsense to make it into the news, and then we all look like idiots.

I mean, we already look like idiots for the whole Iraq mess, but there again, not all of us wanted that war.
