From the article
Naomi Oreskes, a Harvard professor of the history of science, says all this conspiracy-mongering does matter when it comes to issues such as climate change and vaccine safety.
“Without trust in institutional authority — and particularly without trust in science — we are left with no way to correct disinformation,” Oreskes said. “And from there, it is a downward spiral.”

That about sums up the CTs, including the Apollo hoax believers.
Truth needs no defense.  Nobody can take those footsteps I made on the surface of the moon away from me.

Indeed. I've been saying it for years: conspiracism is from a distrust of the authorities, fairly reasonable in certain aspects but ballooned into something more.
