    When someone is willfully ignorant, when they believe that which is demonstrably false, there is nothing anyone can do to change their mind.  Part of the problem, however, is that there are people that know better but that perpetuate the falsehood for their own gain.  People like some right-wing politicians and people in the fossil fuels industry.

    And I'm not sure which is worse; someone who believes to their core that they are right despite all evidence to the contrary or someone that knows they're wrong but perpetuates the falsehood because they are simply greedy.
