Links for the week of October 22nd, 2009

If you want to follow my shared links in real time instead of as a weekly digest, head over to Delicious. You can search them there easily too.

  • Fewer Americans See Solid Evidence of Global Warming – Belief in anthropogenic climate change plummeted over the last 18 months across all parts of the one dimensional US political spectrum. Somehow 56% of people think we should control GHG emissions, while only 36% think that those emissions are the problem. These people can vote. So, yeah, basically, we seem to be screwed.
  • An Epidemic of Fear – A long piece on the anti-vaccine hysteria, its perpetrators and consequences, and also David Offit, the inventor of the Rotavirus vaccine and one of the most vocal (and thus reviled in some circles) vaccine advocates.
