Great talk. I'd like to see that timeline/chart/phylogeny of creationist-enabling measures in greater detail, but I can't find it at the NCSE site.

Save for a few minor quibbles (on the politics of conservatives) this is a superb presentation.

The video should be mandatory viewing in high schools.

Chris Mooney, at DeSmog Blog:

Evolution and Climate Deniers: Natural Allies?

...In a socio-political vaccum, then, it is not at all clear why these two views should go together.

And yet in the specific political context of America, it’s equally clear that they often do.

Indeed, a new public opinion survey commissioned by the Public Religion Research Institute and Religion News Service puts quite a fine point on it. The survey looked at views on evolution and climate across political persuasions and across religious denominations. And it found that two groups in particular rejected science on both topics: political Tea Partiers and Republicans, and white evangelical Protestants. More specifically, some data:

On evolution: Only 43 percent of Tea Partiers (and 45 percent of Republicans) accept the scientific reality of human and animal evolution, and only 32 percent of white evangelical Protestants do.
On climate change: Only a small sliver of Tea Partiers and Republicans (18 percent) accept the scientific reality that humans are causing global warming, and only 31 percent of white evangelical Protestants accept the scientific reality that the Earth is getting warmer and humans are responsible.
