Darwin vs global warming?

At least in Turkey:

The main Turkish government agency responsible for funding science has provoked outrage by apparently censoring a magazine article on the life and work of Charles Darwin.The article was stripped from the March issue of the widely read popular-science magazine Bilim ve Teknik (Science and Technology) just before it went to press.
And what served as a replacement for Darwin's face?
The magazine, which is published by Turkey's research funding and science management organization, TÜBİTAK, also switched a planned cover picture of Darwin for an illustration relating to global warming.
Hmm... at least it's not an illustration of the intelligent design committee in situ. And another consolation: global warming seems to be a matter of consensus with Islamists. Good.
