Limbaugh attacks the "scientific community":
Because the tsunami warning did not result in anything serious. Then Limbaugh went on to say that he, Limbaugh, had intuited that the wave wouldn't amount to much. He also wondered if a satellite could have seen the tsunami.
His main point is that the scientists are engaged in scaring everybody and that you shouldn't trust them.
This is Limbaugh and his audience, secure in their belief that they know more than others. Why debate issues with so-called "experts" in any field, since Limbaugh has declared them to be buffoons.
Except for those who develop Oxycontin, erection-producing drugs, and cochlear implants, that is.
Lindbaugh and his ilk have learned that in politics and economics, the correctness of one's hypothesis is proven by shouting the loudest and repeating a lie over-and-over again. They are hoping to bring this philosophy to science as well. It will be a tough nut to crack but I can see it happening.
