Article reads: Last month at the meetings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a panel titled “Communicating Diversity in Science: Implications for Climate Change Denial” featured a discussion by University of Georgia communication professor Thomas Lessl.  He explained the role that scientism plays as a barrier to effective public communication.

I am afraid that the weakness of scientism goes right to validity of so-called scientific claims, like climate change.
