‘Intellectual yet idiotic’: the sad case of Stephan LewandowskyPosted: September 28, 2016
Another attempt by the CAGW alarmist elite to shut down debate and intimidate through name-calling and ‘othering’ those who dare dissent to their preferred climate wisdom. Classic ad-hominem tactics used by the intolerant and totalitarian Left in order to protect their self-serving, ideological agenda of the day.
When you hear such “don’t listen to any opposing views”, you know you’re listening to a con.
Furthermore Stephan, “belief” and “denial” are the words of zealots not scientists.
Guest opinion by Drieu Godefridi
In a new paper just published with two other authors “The ‘Alice in Wonderland’ mechanics of the rejection of (climate) science: simulating coherence by conspiracism“, Stephan Lewandowsky states — for the umpteenth time — that climate skeptics are deniers, that
“there is strong evidence that the rejection of climate science is primarily driven by ideological factors”
(page 2), even psychological factors since their identity (page 3), or worldview, is threatened by climate science, that
“there is growing evidence for an involvement of conspiracist ideation in the rejection of climate science”
(page 4) and that the whole body of skeptical pseudo-science (pp. 4, 15, 16) is incoherent, thus implying a form of “Mad Hatter” nonsense, since he claims that coherence is at the very essence of science.
Mr. Lewandowsky commits errors in reasoning that should have him immediately stripped of his university affiliation.
