It appears that authors of Yale studies aren't immune to it either:
If this public irrationality thesis were correct, the authors of the Yale study write, then skepticism about climate change could be traced to poor public comprehension about science and the solution would be more science education.If only those stupid skeptics would become better educated, they'd become believers.
You’ve misread the sentence and misunderstood the study.
The authors’ conclusion is that more scientific knowledge only makes people more convinced of their own position, it does not lead them to change sides.
This is probably because the root of this issue is social and political, not scientific. Science is being used as a rationale for political change, rather than as a tool for disinterested inquiry.
