Taking Science Hostage

Grist Magazine has an article declaring that climate skeptics are “stupid” “zombies,” who hate science and want a “new Dark Ages for America.”

They are confused. Science is about skepticism. Richard Feynman said that “Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts.”

It is unfortunate that one group is so insecure of their position that they feel the need to resort to intellectual violence. And then they refuse to take responsibility for their actions. After all, what do you do with zombies?

    Joe Romm has followed their lead over at ‘Climate Progress’ :

    It’s not really worth the read. It’s his usual diatribe, and as always, he refuses to post comments that don’t mirror his own beliefs.
