On engaging with science denial
(Updated, Tuesday, 21st February 2017) I have, over time, engaged with quite a few science deniers, primarily on the issue of abrupt climate change, its human origin, and options for curtailing it. Note I specify abrupt climate change because, while … Continue reading
