  1. Yet another article claiming the left is more anti-science than the right
    This meme is popping up all over the place lately, and the argument is not well-made.
    Opposition to nuclear power, for example, is not “anti-science” in the same way as global warming denial.
    On those issues which are genuinely anti-science are not as empowered on the left as climate denial and Creationism are on the right.
