It’s the bloody media’s fault, treating scientific facts as something that anyone can pick and choose, and all opinions have to be “respected”; I cite thirty years of climate change “controversy” as an example. Read Bad Science by Ben Goldacre for scores of examples. That, and Google, YouTube, Facebook etc. encouraging sensationalism and conspiracy theory as click-bait, to make money from advertising. James Delingpole, the Telegraph’s resident climate change denier, promoted Mike Yeadon’s covid denial via his own website – which gets massive readership because Delingpole writes for the Telegraph.
Murderous self-satisfied tossers.
