There is a conspiracy afoot to promote the overwhelming scientific consensus on global climate change!
Even before intelligent design got to be big news, anti-environmentalists were perfecting the strategy of "teaching the controversy" on climate change, which is to say that they were skillfully taking advantage of the news-media's pretensions of "balance" and "objectivity" to paint a fundamentally dishonest picture of the issue. To illustrate this, I've written a short play.
Today we'll be talking about the moon, and what it's made of. Our first guest is a scientist from a well-respected university who has published numerous peer-reviewed articles on the subject. He claims the moon is made of rock. Welcome, sir!
Our second guest is a guy with a telescope on top of his garage, who claims that moon is made of fried chicken. Thanks for being here!
Thanks for having me.
We think it's our responsibility to present both sides!
