Why We Don't Believe in Science

Chris Mooney has this interesting article in Mother Jones about the science exploring the inability of humans to separate emotion from reason and, ultimately, why the communication of climate science is therefore unlikely to win any converts in the climate change debate.

By the way, Mooney's article covers much of the same ground as Dan Gardner's recent book, Future Babble: Why Expert Predictions Are Next to Worthless, and You Can Do Better.
