The last sentence of this quote from an article about scientists disputing climate change deniers made me laugh:
The scientists say they are not advocates or partisan. They are taking the unusual step — for scientists — of engaging in the discussion because the urgency is growing and misinformation is clouding the increasingly important public debate.
Some say it’s about time.
Some say that shitty he-said/she-said journalism that can’t call out a fact without putting it in someone’s mouth gives a lot of cranks, like climate change deniers, a platform that they shouldn’t have, and that this journalism is a real reason that people who shout the loudest dominate our public discourse. Others say that chocolate milk is the best kind of milk.
