Surprise, surprise, it's not really evolution, but their own selfishness - they like what butters their bread, but hate what may give their adult children bread (e.g., government regulation on emissions).
This is why the FTK-Luskin argument that "we have more kids than you Darwinists, therefore we'll win" is ridiculous. Reality will cram the "global climate change hoax" (and enforced vaccination) down their children's throats.
The article Inside Higher Education is talking about is open access and is available here for those who are interested...
Thanks for that link. (The BUMC Proceedings paper will benefit)
