In Our Opinion, These Opinions Are Smart Opinions:
Although we usually use this space to call out bad actors, today we’re going to kick off this week with some praise for great pieces that illustrate that the deniers’ denial isn’t going very well.  ;D

Down at the Miami Herald, columnist Fred Grimm surveyed the overwhelming number of climate stories that broke last week. He opens his column by declaring that, “Denial begins to look like psychosis” and ends on a no less pithy note. After tearing through a terrifying list of maladies, Grimm points out that despite the melting glaciers, the rising seas, warming temperatures and drying droughts, political leaders and other deniersjust keep on denying.”

This sentiment was echoed by the NY Times’s Paul Krugman, who outlined for readers The Axis of Climate Evil . Krugman points to the fossil fuel-funded voices, the ideologically anti-regulation actors, and the attention-seeking contrarian academics as the three nodes of the denier axis. He also calls out something we’ve mentioned when he writes that he “can’t think of a single prominent climate skeptic who isn’t obviously arguing in bad faith.”

Nevertheless, scientists have persisted and resisted. Former EPA science advisor Robert Richardson (relieved of duty by the administration) writes in the Washington Post about how Trump’s attack on science isn’t going very well.   
Richardson, positively dripping in the sarcasm and contempt that we do so appreciate, notes that, “Academic integrity, it turns out, is really important to professionals in scientific agencies of the federal government.”


So despite the alt-facts ideology of the White House, scientists are as of yet still staying true to their dedication to real facts. Who woulda thought!? Oh, everyone who isn’t a troll arguing in bad faith.
