I think that, if you wanted to include democrats in a similar light you'd have to ask them about nuclear power. They tend to completely disregard science when it comes to technologies they fear.
I'm not a democrat, but as an anti-USA-nuclear liberal I also don't disregard science. Instead, I believe that the pro-nuclear lobby is blatantly ignoring human nature. Maybe it's just American nature, I don't know. I simply don't trust my country to safely operate, maintain, and deal with the waste from nuclear reactors. That doesn't mean I think nobody should do nuclear. It means I'm opposed to it here.
