  •  Nice summary. (2+ / 0-)

    It's so tiresome that everyone just shouts "shill" and claims that every scientist is on the payroll. It's just a type of conspiracy thinking that has no value at all.

    And it's funny--even people who don't think they are conspiracy theorists fling that all the time.

    Kevin Folta has been such a champ in this--he's so actively trying to educate in so many ways. And in the swamp of misinformation he faces, it's astonishing that he can keep going. I love that he specifically is trying to get the cranks to substantiate their claims--like that fake corn data, like Huber's mystery disease--and they scurry away from that.

    People should read his blog--he's a real firecracker:
