Conspiracies like tens of thousands of scientists all over the world going back a century or more have perpetrated global warming as a hoax.

that type of thinking is exploited by cognitive bias to create logical fallacies.

This goes back to the question i've asked a few times:

How does the IRS & AP Wiretap issues validate "conspiracies".

I find the whole "conspiracy theory" concept interesting. It's mostly just a derogatory term used to marginalize those who don't believe official government stories. Some rather far-fetched ideas are obviously unlikely to be true, and some people have clearly irrational beliefs about how the world works, but the blind and naive trust so many have for a government that has a long history of lying to its people is the far more interesting psychological study.

Conspiracy theory nutjobs are greater in number and scope than just 9/11 troofers.

I agree. It's more far-fetched to believe that the government doesn't commit conspiracies.
