What's behind climate science denial?
Not surprisingly, the Koch brothers and the failed ideology to which they subscribe. It's called 'public choice' and that is a main talking point of Repugnantans. It's based on the Ayn Randian notion that everything is motivated by self-interest. And of course that's how they deny climate change, by saying those scientists are only motivated by their self-interest of keeping their jobs so make this shit up. They cannot understand that some people are altruistic and humane and are doing their jobs to protect people and the environment, seeing this as some sort of rationalization. It is a sick and repugnant worldview that is not morally or factually equivalent to what they criticize. It is wrong, inhumane and destroying this planet and the people in it.
