Stephan Lewandowsky’s “Moon Landing Paper” scathingly criticized by team of psychologists in a new book


Climate scientists who have no doubts about their conclusions that CO2 is a significant global warming factor exhibit their inability to think and express themselves logically.
Their logic is nothing short of absurd.

Watts Up With That?

There is a new book about to be published titled: The Social Psychology of Morality,  which is to be published by the Psychology Press. I and several other skeptic bloggers have been given an advance look. The new book has a chapter on the interaction between “high moral purpose” and scientific integrity, and it cites the recent sliming of climate skeptics work of Stephan Lewandowsky. There’s this [chapter] that pretty well sums up the caliber of Lewandowsky’s work:

The Curious Case of Condemning Climate Skeptics as Conspiracy Theorists (Lewandowsky, Oberauer, & Gignac, 2013)

Into this mix stepped Lewandowski et al. (2013) with a paper titled, “NASA Faked the Moon Landing – Therefore (Climate) Science is a Hoax” – which strongly implies that people who doubt global warming believe bizarre conspiracy theories.  As Lewandowsky et al. (2013, p. 622) put it, “… conspiratorial thinking contributes to the rejection of science.”
