Recruiting kooks


Roger over at Singular Values has in the past referred to psychologists as kooks.

James from nourishingobscurity has referred to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest as an exemplar of how climate sceptics are liable to be treated by psychologists.

On the same lines, Bishop Hill has another psychology related post (called Potty-mouthed Nature) which links to a truly weird paper (Promoting pro-environmental action in climate change deniers) published by Nature.

Psychologists seem to be investigating a possible cure for climate scepticism. The word denier is used 48 times, so at least we are not in the realms of academic integrity, which is something of a relief.

Kooks indeed.
