What’s the NY Times on About?

In their lead editorial in today’s web version (not sure what’s in the print edition):

“With one exception, none of the Republicans running for the Senate — including the 20 or so with a serious chance of winning — accept the scientific consensus that humans are largely responsible for global warming.”

“repudiating years of peer-reviewed findings about global warming and creating an alternative reality in which climate change is a hoax or conspiracy.”

It’s ok that they take a political position and oppose the Republicans in the upcoming elections.  But to use the two words “scientific consensus” in the same sentence shows they do not understand science at all. Sigh.  As said many times elsewhere, we need better media.
