Another good TED talk

This one’s by Michael Spector and it’s focus is denialism.  So unlike the previous one, it’s a bit more rapid fire, covering a broader range of topics that are united by the thought processes that drive anti-science public opinion movements.  He touches on vaccines, genetically modified crops, supplements, and AIDS denialism epitomized by former South African President Thabo Mbeki:

Again I recommend this one because I think he gets a lot of things right and the issues he covers are ones that most of the general public haven’t paid much attention to or heard from his particular point of view.
