1.  The Myth and Its Flaw



Political conservatives in the United States, in comparison to liberals, remain less likely to accept the science on man-made climate change and evolution. They also trust scientists less on these topics. But left-leaning science denialism on vaccination, genetically-modified organisms GMOs), and nuclear power balances out this right-leaning science denialism. So science denialism remains as proponent among liberals as among conservatives.
