Somebody in psychology finally ‘gets it’ about Stephan Lewandowsky and John Cook and their ‘smear science’

Lew is “despicable and fraudulent”? Quite.

Watts Up With That?

Social psychologist Jose Duarte pulls no punches in describing Lewandowsky’s failures of science in the “Moon Hoax” paper and the later retracted “Fury” paper. And then goes on to describe failure in Cook’s 97% consensus paper. Excerpts follow.

in their abstract they say:

“Endorsement of free markets also predicted the rejection of other established scientific findings, such as the facts that HIV causes AIDS and that smoking causes lung cancer.”

This is all false, and the paper should be retracted. It should’ve been retracted by the authors already.
