    Oreskes is certainly a nuanced thinker, and seems to treat such a contentious matter very objectively. She is a model for how to address deniers.


  3. [...] The Weekend Wonk: Naomi Oreskes and the Merchants of Doubt [...]


  4. Orekes is a merchant of 97 per cent certainty. Given the nature of the hypothesis and recent work casting uncertainty even rejection, Orekes is the mirror image of those she accuses.
