Andrew Bolt: How a few trolls convinced Lewandowsky sceptics were mad

I have written before of my concern about Professor Stephan Lewandowsky’s cavalier misrepresentation of evidence and endorsement of underhand methods (which even included forgery by others) to peddle absurd smears of sceptics in his warmist zeal.

But now this crusading psychologist seems to have taken one dangerous step too far.  Lewandowsky and two fellow academics from the University of Western Australia have now produced a peer-reviewed sliming of sceptics with the arresting title ”NASA faked the moon landing – Therefore (Climate) Science is a Hoax”:

Their claim (using suspiciously loaded terms such as “denial” and even more supicious assumptions of a monolithic set of views called “climate science”) is that if you believe in free markets, you’re more inclined to be just the scientific whacko who believes moon landings were faked – and “climate science” is wrong.

Swear to God, that is exactly what Lewandowsky asserts, without any attempt to engage in the arguments prominent sceptics actually make:
