I was listening to NPR last week while driving to Arizona. They had an interesting discussion with a scientist who disputed the consensus idea that dinosaurs were wiped out by a meteor. She talked about the extreme pressure and hostility she faced from peers, trying to force her to come around to the consensus view. At one point the interviewer said “I don’t think I could withstand that.”
When the show ended, the interviewer said it was a weekly science show where they discuss important topics like “climate denialism.” An intelligent person might have thought that one through – but this was NPR.
Later on NPR news, they said Jerry Brown was launching a satellite to “monitor climate change gases” – which are apparently located far to the left of inert gases on the periodic table.
