Nothing to fear from denialists.

On Grist, Jay Inslee vents about the "birthers" and climate-change deniers:
Both birthers and the climate-change deniers work on a similar premise—that concrete facts can be subjugated to the power of fear. Both movements fear change and contemplate that they can create enough smoke and confusion to fertilize the ascendency of fear.  They both enjoy big megaphones and are capable of big noise, but are both fundamentally rotten at the factual core.
