You can tell where this is going:
One scientist can be wrong. But deny the scientific consensus at your peril
David Robert Grimes
Yep, you’ve got it:
Even as the world swelters and burns, Republican candidates last week denied the reality of anthropogenic climate breakdown, with some decrying it as a hoax by scientists. Despite the incontrovertible evidence of a human-mediated climate crisis, a sizable contingent reject reality by smearing scientists as either fools or liars. Dearlove’s comments simply reinforce a false message that scientists cannot be trusted, and that science itself is a partisan undertaking. With science integral to our collective wellbeing, such comments ultimately serve only to undermine public trust and understanding, leaving us more divided and less informed.
And of course he’s wrong.
The entire point of science is that if the lone individual is right then they’re right and the consensus wrong. As with, say, continental drift.
