Which is rather irrelevant, since facts aren't decided by popular vote and scholar is not a protected term.

I'm curious... are you a climate change denier too? Yours is essentially the same argument they use to discredit scientists.

Yet more personalised remarks, in lieu of actually adressing the point being raised.
