Some critics of the scientific consensus on global warming have argued that these issues should not be linked and that reference to them constitutes an unjustified ad hominem attack.  Political scientist Roger Pielke, Jr. , responding to Mooney, has argued that science is inevitably intertwined with politics. 
In 2000 when Bush elected Dick Cheney of Halliburton Energy Services, Bush's opinion gradually swayed away from global warming and into other areas. As of now Bush has a see-no-evil, hear-no evil stance on global warming and when his administration's scientists weigh in on the issue, he simply won't hear of it. There was a report sent to Congress in August 2001 that argued that the warming of the atmosphere cannot be explained by natural causes but must include such human sources
In the National Affairs article "Science Friction: the Politics of global warming," Brian Tucker endorses the popular Republican point of view. He claims that the "Kyoto Treaty offers only insignificant reimbursement." According to him, the level of global warming that it will prevent does not outweigh the high costs of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. He also believes that the target levels that the treaty has suggested for each country are unrealistic and unattainable and overall the treaty effects will not make a significant impact. He uses the example that France, as a means of reducing its fossil fuel emissions, made a transition from fossil fuel to nuclear energy. Sweden, South Korea, Switzerland, and Spain have the lowest carbon dioxide emissions and as expected the . has the highest. Since France adapted nuclear energy so have other countries, the . included. In the . there are at least 109 nuclear-powered electricity-generating stations. However, despite the fact that it reduced its emissions by thirty percent it has only made a ten percent difference in the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
