It’s very easy to cry conspiracy. I mean, it was probably less than an hour after the news broke that Justice Scalia died that I saw a tweet demanding an independent autopsy. Because, well, I only ever saw him in his robes, but I always thought he had the face of someone who was a bit hefty. And a hefty guy a month away from turning 80 dying of a heart attack is “suspicious.” Of course, that’s what they want you to think.
Anyway, one of the biggest conspiracy claims online is that climate change isn’t real. Because tens of thousands of scientists working in various fields for decades in scores of countries are all “in” on whatever the conspiracy theorist is against. Thousands of nefarious doers who never have a change of heart and blow the whistle. Yeah, because that’s how conspiracies really work. Have you ever heard the saying, “Three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead?”
