But how did we get to this public situation of "reverse credibility"?

In the 60s, the anti-establishment types said, "Don't trust anyone over 30."

Now, it is, "Don't trust anyone who knows what they're talking about."

Many of these partisan clashes could be resolved by a simple appeal to the facts. How does carbon behave? How does math work? But somehow, we can't do that.
