The only ones to penetrate the lie

David Roberts lays bare the absurdity of Climate Change Denial.

Consider what the Limbaugh/Morano crowd is saying about climate: not only that that the world’s scientists and scientific institutions are systematically wrong, but that they are purposefully perpetrating a deception. Virtually all the world’s governments, scientific academies, and media are either in on it or duped by it. The only ones who have pierced the veil and seen the truth are American movement conservatives, the ones who found death panels in the healthcare bill.

Is there a better way to put it? Probably not, although there is the added layer that the claimed motivation for the lie is a political agenda, while the claimers are the ones that fit snugly in a particular political category. Oh, also check out this chart from Gallup:
