When it comes to denying overwhelming scientific evidence it seems that climate change does not hold the entire market. A recent article in Science magazine covered a new website called AIDStruth.org that seems to have a very similar mandate to that of DeSmogBlog.
AIDStruth was launched by AIDS researchers, clinicans and activists fed up with a small but very vocal group of people skeptical of the link between HIV and AIDS. Their website features a section called “Debunking the Denialist Myths” and another providing information on “AIDS Denialists.”
According to AIDStruth founder Nathan Geffen, “Many people who had fought denialism in the early 1990s had lost interest in the subject, but in South Africa, it was at its peak. South Africa has more people living with HIV than any other country, and it’s also been a place where AIDS denialism has had political support with terrible results.”
