Why do our politicians deny climate science? Is there a lesson for education funding?

Simple answer to the first question: they are elected by voters who deny climate science. Check out the report from motherjones.com of a new climate change poll with graphics showing results by state and county. Good news: southern AZ gets it. Bad news: damn few other places do.

Is the answer to the second question just as simple? Does the devaluation of education evident in our elected officials reflect the underlying values of the AZ electorate?
