Fun & games on Reddit

Stephan Lewandowsky, the author of the article that made climate change denialists cry and that was later retracted under pressure from denialists, is doing a Reddit AMA right now. Get in early! Before the kooks flood the questions!

    The AMA looks good so far (as of 0930 EDT). Only one kook question.

    The whole discussion looks pretty reasonable to me. There are occasional denialists and at least one 911 truther but the great majority of the comments are on the topic. A few have quite serious questions about that area of research generally and SL’s given a few references to his own and others’ work in related areas.

    Of course, nobody knows how hard the moderator hamsters have been running on their particular wheels.

    I hear the moderators were prepared to fire up the hamster wheels, though I don’t know what they’ve been doing.

    But Reddit has other venues, and the denialists are busy there:
