This is fasinating reading. I found myself having to make conscious efforts to stay calm and not shout at my computer at times. It really is quite something though.
It's easy to be judgemental about such things, and indeed about the US Presidential candidate it's all there for. He tells us that the earth is not running out of oil and various other things besides. No doubt comforting words to many.
I wonder why people would choose not to learn things though (even things that are well argued and described rationally). That's the thing I understand the least about "these people".
