Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Even Green Cranks Are Inspired by the CRU Data Release

The cranks apparently trying to exploit the CRU data release (phenomenon mentioned briefly here and discussed at length by Orac) include an anti-nuclear activist (seen via Energy from Thorium):

Perhaps it’s not surprising that women and people of color would have more trouble accepting the beneficence of the white male-dominated industrial order?

Nuclear proponents have failed to grasp that all the studies about nuclear safety in the world don’t mean a thing to the people who don’t believe that the books are honest and uncooked. Instead, nuclear fans just keep saying, “Trust us, it’s safe!” in different ways.

In other words, they're pretending that the data available in freaking textbooks doesn't exist and that Geiger counters don't exist.

I don't think it's a coincidence that this surfaced a few weeks after the CRU data release.

Don't mistake diagnosis for defense. I'm not an "anti-nuclear activist."
