Liars vs hypocrites
« on: July 09, 2017, 11:44:48 AM »
Hi
Couldn't see a thread to post links to of interesting articles so created a new thread instead. Interesting article about the on-going battle between climate science and climate deniers/cynics. Most interesting is definition of deniers and cynics and when one becomes the other. Also that hypocrites are thought of much worse than liars. Much food for thought on how to win the argument(s).

The Skeptical Science website also has a good section on myth debunking

No. To some extent that is the automatic response the article argues the climate change community has to alter in order to gain support for the socio-economic changes required.  Have you read the article?

Very interesting article, though long as hell...
Cynicism as defined in it is now widespread in the population unfortunately, having been sowed there by the bad guys.
