Well, it's not a very pretty discussion but I think that values are being discussed pretty regularly. There are a lot of questions to be asked and answered. The problem is that a certain side* thought that coming out and saying that the science was settled would impress. Instead it was a total miscalculation of the disposition of people. Our civilization is way past the point of taking orders from on high.
