Why the Conservatives better not be relying on the scientist vote

Wow. Even the *thought* that scientists *might* support Harper makes me giggle. 

I don't think that he is worried about the scientists vote. But he is obviously trying to fool some people. And bribe others. Don't let him succeed.

Spears asked NASA and Environment Canada for interviews. NASA gave him one in 15 minutes. The Canadians refused. He wrote his story — giving the Americans the credit — and filed an access-to-info request. He got an e-mail trail that showed 11 Canadian officials sent dozens of e-mails back and forth over two days before rejecting his request.

This is all Stephen Harper’s doing. To avoid stories that contradict his message, he has created a centralized machine that makes it impossible for scientists to communicate without political approval.
