Andrew Bolt is confused… he can’t understand why people are panicking about the nuclear reactor in Japan. Over the past few days he has been trotting out a range of “experts” and reports that “prove” there is nothing to worry about…
…and yet people are still apparently “overstating the risk.” (No, a nuclear reactor on the verge of a meltdown is nothing to be concerned about!)
Question: why do people who think their government and scientists would always lie about nuclear power also think green groups would always tell the truth? How can you be so cynical about the one and so gullible with the other?
I actually blurted my coffee over the keyboard when I read that post.
How about we rephrase the question:
Question: why does Andrew Bolt think the government and scientists would always lie about climate change also think right wing think tanks and nutters would always tell the truth? How can he be so cynical about the one and so gullible with the other?
Because only one group of scientists is capable of lying?
Oh that’s right… your ideological filter is what does the trick.
