Back in August 2011, presidential candidate Jon Huntsman told ABC News on “This Week”:
“The minute that the Republican Party becomes the anti-science party, we have a huge problem.”
Huntsman, we have a problem (and it’s pretty huge). There were many anti-science statements made by the GOP this year, but we were able to narrow them into the following countdown of Addicting Info’s Top 2012 Anti-Science Statements by Republicans:
10. Senate candidate for Indiana, Tea Party-supported Republican Richard Mourdock, gets the number-10 spot, not for his flub that conception from rape is God’s will, but rather his stance on climate change in statements he made during a May 2012 Americans for Limited Government (ALG) conference call, as reported by The American Spectator:

So which do you think came first – Mourdock’s disbelief in man-made climate change, or the fossil fuel industry’s financial support of his campaign?
