Anti-science cartoon

The cartoon in the Open Forum has a tendency to be insufferable, but on Tuesday, Feb. 16,  it was particularly bad. Science changes when new evidence presents itself and that is a good thing. We are learning new things every day, and adjusting accordingly. That is a good thing. 

It’s sad to see an editorial cartoon promoting anti science talking points during a literal global pandemic. Again, it’s this kind of thing that promotes misinformation that leads to a lot of unnecessary suffering because of the attitudes it fosters and the behaviors that ensue. 

I would hope that we as a society would learn our lesson when it came to politicizing natural disasters like pandemics.
