There is a blogstorm raging these days for those of you with inadequate workplace supervision. Check here for the latest post from ground zero.
The synopsis is: scientist releases paper showing strong correlation between belief in conspiracy theories, free market ideology, anti-science attitudes and the rejection of climate science; climate skeptic blogger community sees conspiracy and scientific fraud. (To their credit, I have not yet seen the accusation of “socialist”.)
I don’t have much to say about it, I am as embarrassed for these folks as I am amused by the irony of it all. I should acknowledge my part in it as one of the blogs posting the survey. I was however unable to attend the secret meeting so can’t comment on the conspiracy that was behind it all.
On a more serious note: is the result really that surprising?
