Overconfident ‘experts’ may end up ignoring the science of climate change.

One thought on “Overconfident ‘experts’ may end up ignoring the science of climate change.”

  1. I agree. “Climate change” is, unfortunately, a battle in the culture war.

    Anti-Climate Change is identified with other cultural positions, as you stated. In the U.S. this war seems to have started with Viet Nam and the “hippies” vs. the straight.

    The method: GOP politicians wrap up their constituents with their traditional culture positions (anti-gay, small government, no taxes, sanctimonious “God” talk) AND ALSO include their anti-science rhetoric. So, their loyal followers on the right (who are firmly on that side of the culture war) are ALSO trapped in an anti-science position. Consequence? The fossil fuel corporations (who bankroll these guys) make a few more bucks, at the expense of the biosphere.

    I’m not suggesting that these followers are to be called “fossil fools”, but sometimes I wonder…
