If you understand science, with strong reasoning skills, you are likely to be a climate skeptic — Yes!

Russ Steele

A new study by the Cultural Cognition Project at Yale Law School has produced a result that its authors want to hide:

People with better knowledge of science and stronger reasoning skills are more likely to be skeptical of climate change than people with lower levels of comprehension.

This is without doubt the most important finding in the new study, but because it does not fit into the warmist authors’ agenda, they choose to bury it in a heap of sociological gobbledygook.

What does that say about our local climate warmers?  Do they really lack enough scientific smarts and lack reasoning skills? Your call!

    Many of the medical mistakes are the results of people treating doctors like gods who can do no wrong. A dishonest lawyer will be happy to take your money for a case that you have little chance of wining. People are so anxious to have others look at them as experts on a subject that they will accept the views of another “expert” without question when it sounds impressive and they don’t do their own research. They are also reluctant to admit they are wrong so they will stay with a fiction long after the facts indicate otherwise.
    You can blame some of it on progressive teachers who teach facts and feel good but neglect logical thinking. People can obtain a degree without being exposed to logical thinking by avoiding hard science subjects so a degree is no indication of a persons ability to think.
    Just remember that these people have the vote!

    Yes they have the vote. Bryan Caplan challenging the notion that voters are reasonable people that society can trust to make laws in his book The Myth of the Rational Voter: Why Democracies Choose Bad Policies. Caplan contends that voters are irrational in the political sphere and have systematically biased ideas concerning economics and I fear in science as well. The uninformed are in control of our future. Scary!
