Re: Why science matters

With Packard and Turdy both layin' down the strawmen I'm gonna have to get myself one of those tandem rakes too.

Re: Why science matters

I'd say that the best contemporary comparison to AGW denialism is the anti-vaxxer movement.

Definitely a popular delusion, although as far as I know there is little astroturf cash behind it.

Re: Why science matters

The language and the logic of AGW denialism and anti-vaxxerism are very similar.

Like the 'lil mom recently interviewed on the news who said it is "the overreach of a fascist government."

Re: Why science matters

I'd assume that the proportion of infectious disease and public health "experts" who are anti-vax is similar to AGW deniers in that realm. Although it is less clear who pays them.

More a fusion thing I think- Alex Jones and his ilk and probably some of the RW grift machine that want to sell vitamins and supplements to cure everything.
