The Junior Woodchucks are working overtime in South Dakota, where the state government has just passed a bill telling schools to present the threats of global warming in a skeptical fashion:
The resolution invokes these fallacious claims in the service of four points: "That global warming is a scientific theory rather than a proven fact"; "That there are a variety of climatological, meteorological, astrological, thermological, cosmological, and ecological dynamics that can >> effect
<< [sic] world weather phenomena and that the significance and interrelativity [sic] of these factors is largely speculative"; "That the debate on global warming has subsumed political and philosophical viewpoints which have complicated and prejudiced the scientific investigation of global warming phenomena"; and that instruction about global warming should be "appropriate to the age and academic development of the student and to the prevailing classroom circumstances." [ 1, 2, 3
I find this rather casual disregard for good grammar quite disturbing. Generally speaking, affect means "to influence," and effect means "a result" [ 4
For example, you can say, "Global warming has affected the rhetoric of many politicians who are bought and paid for by corporate lobbyists", as opposed to "The effect of global warming on corporate lobbyists is to inspire them to give lots of money to members of congress".
Please people, there is no excuse for bad grammer.
