Waterworks Analogy

What if the city engineer said, We’ve done an inventory of the pipes that deliver water. We have discovered a major problem. About 90% of them are in danger of rusting through in the next few years, which would allow pathogens into the water supply. We need to do some major maintenance work. What if then a citizen poured himself a glass of water and said I don’t see any problem. The engineer is lying. Without doubt, there is a conspiracy of everyone in the engineering department to get overtime hours. Then the local fair and balanced radio station gave the city engineer and the pipe denier equal time and treated them as equally credible. This is what happened with global climate change.
