Denialist follies:

So this psychology professor at Univ of West Australia does a survey to see if belief in global warming conspiracy theories is correlated with other conspiracy theories which are not climate related in any way.  Short answer: yes.  Long answer: hell, yes!

Commenter make accusations that he lied about contacting skeptic blogs to post a link to the surveys, in order to get the answer he wanted.  Demonstrating the very conspiracist ideation that they are offended by being linked to!

Subsequent posts continue the fun: "It has come to my attention that one of the individuals who initially denied—yes, folks, that's the correct word, look it up in a dictionary—having received an invitation to post a link to my survey on the rejection of science on his blog, has now found that email." "The public response to my forthcoming paper in Psychological Science, entitled "NASA faked the moon landing—Therefore (Climate) Science is a Hoax: An Anatomy of the Motivated Rejection of Science," has provided a perfect real-life illustration of the very cognitive processes at the center of my research.

In fact, the cascading eruption of allegations and theories about the paper and myself have illustrated the impoverished epistemology of climate denial better than any mountain of data could have done."

What a bunch of dumbasses!
