    "Will they stick around if they find out they've been duped into being pawns for Big Tobacco and Big Oil?"

    This research was done by a liberal scientist at a liberal university conspiring with radical leftists to push an extreme liberal agenda, so the premise of the question is faulty: they will never "find out" they've been "duped" because no amount of evidence will ever convince them that this is true. They can't be worked with, they must be worked around.

      It appears that the anti-science anti-fact folks are processing in their brain stem (lizard brain) rather than the higher thinking lobes that evolved millions of years later.

      Impartially speaking -- they think as though they are a mouse about to eaten by a snake.

      Denial is a drug.
