PRI The World ran a 10 minute feature today on the wisdom of using the term “denier” in the debate over climate change and other science policy controversies.
Correspondent Jason Margolis does a terrific job in synthesizing research and comments from various experts on why the use of the label by science advocates is likely to be a major blunder. My comments come at about 7 minutes and 15 seconds into the archived audio.
What do readers think? Convinced yet that “denier” should be dropped from our lexicon?
