longer delays for some truths

This blog has noted before that in its selection of articles about climate change the aggregator site Arts and Letters Daily reveals a persistent anti-science agenda. It's good to see where this comes from.

In the New York Times, the right-wing philosopher Denis Dutton, who set up the site, compares fears about climate change to YK2 and UFO cults. Climate Progress quotes a good letter of rebuttal here.

Arts and Letters Daily carries the motto veritas odit moras or 'truth hates delay'. But the website prefers to delay those scientific truths that unsettle its libertarian bias. Perhaps indefinitely.
