In an interesting post from Climate Progress, the so called 'Birthers' - birth deniers in reality - have been compared to climate change deniers;
- Both groups are impervious to the evidence.
- Both come from the same group of people.
- Both group get their disinformation from the same right-wing sources.
- Both groups have an underlying motivation — their desire to obstruct progressive government action.
- Both groups believe in a mammoth conspiracy theory.
I think Joseph Romm may have a point.
