The paper discusses Dan M. Kahan's article "The Cognitively Illiberal State" that offers an explanation for why people are accepting of Al Gore's global warming theories, even though, as he claims, they are not proven facts. The paper explains Kahan's assertion that it is due to the fact that Gore presents his theories as values that people want to embrace, together with effective rhetoric and feelings of guilt. The paper further explains Kahan's view that this "cultural cognitive illiberalism" becomes the vehicle for self-interest and profit from the laws and legislation enacted in the name of preserving the planet.
