Denialism SquaredNovember 16, 2009
Oh great. Now what are we to believe? First there’s this list of 450 peer-reviewed papers authored by alleged climate deniers, and then this denial of denialism by policy science whipping-boy Roger Pielke Jr.
This leads me to introduce my new variation on an old logic puzzle, the Denier’s Paradox: “I hereby deny everything about my next sentence. I thereby affirm the previous sentence.” Ahh, a performative conundrum only a philosopher could love.
