For John, BLUF: Wait for the punch line. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Politico reports on Yale law professor Dan Kahan, who "posted on his blog this week that he analyzed the responses of more than 2,000 American adults recruited for another study and found that, on average, people who leaned liberal were more science literate than those who leaned conservative."
OK, that confirms the accepted wisdom. It explains why conservatives, whatever they are, are skeptical about "global warming".
However, those who identified as part of the tea party movement were actually better versed in science than those who didn’t, Kahan found. The findings met the conventional threshold of statistical significance, the professor said.Who would have thought?
