Actually, there isn't

On Tuesday morning's edition of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," the morning news program-cum-Joe Scarborough vanity project, hosts Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski covered the ongoing anti-vaccination hysteria that has led to a massive measles outbreak in 14 states.

"There is not, at least in the science community, a debate [the conenction between vaccinations and autism] anymore," he said. "This is not even close. There is still a debate on climate change, the effects of climate change, how quickly climate change is coming on us, how much man contributes. There are a thousand different variables in that debate."

Essentially, he said that although climate science is hazy, this isn't. Actually, climate science isn't all that hazy, and to suggest otherwise only legitimizes deniers' claims.
