There’s a new report in The New York Times showing that the more education Republicans have, the less they tend to believe in climate change. Former education secretary Arne Duncan seemed stumped by that finding and asked for an explanation:
The MORE education Republicans have, the LESS they believe in climate change.
Can someone please explain this to me? https://t.co/FSbESlMYs3

Maybe an education arms one against politicized science where the data are modified to fit the theory instead of the other way around.

Appeals to authority are less effective against people with an education. https://t.co/ojDheO52by

Yes. I can read a science paper. Good luck trying to herd me. https://t.co/gNpNG1wUf9

Not shocked by this at all. If you understand the science, the less you are worried about it. https://t.co/WWRmX56BKt

3. LOL https://t.co/fXcaQItwDw

Yes: with more education, and a mind free of the need to join the herd, the flaws in the AGW hypothesis become manifest.

Click bait. Study says they worry about it less, not that they don't believe in it. Hysteria from The Left is 1 reason. 2nd, no one should

He’s not listening anyway.
You’re not really interested in explanation. Just want to herd people to a cult you believe in.
