    How They Made Us Doubt Everything

    Why do laypersons have such arrogance when denying human-caused climate change?

    A very good reply to this question by Lee Thé, on Quora: "One facet of low intelligence is lack of self-assessment ability. Thus it’s not what they don’t know. It’s what they don’t know that they don’t know. Dumb people literally can’t imagine a higher intelligence than their own. Intelligent...

    Merchands of doubt losing the battle in the UK

    Survey of British adults on behalf of ECIU on climate change. Here in the UK, at least, people are starting to see through the lies and propaganda spread by those who are happy to risk rendering large parts of the Earth uninhabitable in order to maintain their profits. My guess is that...
