Garbage In, Garbage Out | Daily Telegraph Miranda Devine Blog

Hah! Turns out the more scientifically and mathematically literate you are the more skeptical you are about the imminent peril of climate change.

Who would have thunk it.

These were the “surprise” results of a US government survey published in the journal Nature last week.

The survey is even more compelling when you see the researchers were looking for the opposite conclusion. They had an inbuilt prejudice towards climate skeptics, expecting them to be less scientifically knowledgeable than alarmists, when in fact the reverse was the case.
