It should be pointed out that science is only mistrusted when the results of whatever experiment is being done doesn't benefit the general populace. A scientist who believes climate change is real is being paid off by the government, but a scientist who has a theory that climate change is actually totally natural and not worth worrying about is of course a genius who couldn't have any ulterior motive. I mean admittedly it's easier to believe a scientist who believes in climate change is being paid off by the goverment than that the guy against it is trying to make a name for himself or whatever, but still. I think it comes down to people taking any possible excuse to deny something bad is happening.
