Stephan Lewandowsky
Inside The Mind Of A Conspiracy Theorist

Stephan Lewandowsky talks to Chris Mooney about conspiratorial thinking. How does one become a conspiracy theorist? Conspiratorial thinking clearly plays an important role in science denial, on matters ranging from the connection between HIV and AIDS, to the safety of vaccines, to global warming.

Stephan Lewandowsky is a professor of psychology and he's the author of a recent study "NASA Faked the Moon Landings, Therefore (Climate) Science is a Hoax: An Anatomy of the Motivated Rejection of Science (PDF)". It was followed by a second study of the conspiracy theorists who rejected the first study for, yes, conspiratorial reasons.
