Climate Change alarmists love to portray anyone who questions their “facts” as ignorant flyover-country anti-science morons who still believe the earth is flat.
So, they will not be too happy with the following:
Via Investor’s Business Daily: Are Global Warming Skeptics On Wrong Side Of Science?
….the findings of a study show that global warming skeptics score better on climate science questions than those who believe man is causing the planet to warm through the combustion of fossil fuels.
A paper that will appear in the journal Advances in Political Psychology says that, on average, skeptics got 4.5 questions right while the followers of the faith averaged four correct answers. This doesn’t mean skeptics are more informed; it just means they’re not poorly informed, which is what alarmists want us all to believe.
The paper was written by Yale Law School professor Dan Kahan, not a skeptic looking for a particular outcome. He quizzed about 2,000 people with nine questions, asking about such issues as melting North Pole ice and skin cancer risk in a supposedly warming world….
He followed that…with a blog post saying “I don’t think it is useful at all to characterize as ‘anti-science’ the 50% of U.S. general population who, using exactly the same forms of reasoning as those who conclude that best evidence supports belief in AGW, conclude that the best evidence doesn’t support it.”
By the way, there was supposed to be a Fossil Free Yale protest last week. However, it was postponed.
Seems it was too cold and snowy for members of Fossil Free Yale to leave the comfort of their homes — homes, by the way, that are almost certainly warmed by fossil fuel.
And, on a personal note, here in NYC, last Monday was a bone-chilling 3 degrees, which almost broke the record for lowest temperature for that day.
And the highest temperature recorded for last Monday in NYC?
71 degrees in 1954.
So, where is Global Warming/Climate Change when you need it?
