Why science is rejected by conservatives

A quick post today with a few wise words from Chris Mooney:

“Science is, let us remember, one of the most destabilizing forces on the planet. It is relentless in its constant driving of change – change not only in how we live, but how we think. In this, it is a liberal force – always searching after the new and different. So sometimes it can’t help but clash with conservative forces – striving to preserve and avert change.”
