How about advances in medicine, furthering our understanding of geological or biological processes in order to benefit us in some new way. Maybe engineering, seeing as how these computers we use are creations of science.
In the event something as drastic as scientists stopping something like (and this is by no means a statement to take serious at all but just an example) a comet heading towards earth. These are just a tiny percentage of the productive reasons for studying science.

What do you get from studying conspiracies? Paranoid and nowhere.

So.. are you a climate change denialist, or a climate change sceptic? There's a good opinion piece on this in the latest Nature (vol 464 1 April 2010), "Sceptics and deniers of climate change not to be confused"



Denialism is motivated by conviction rather than evidence. Deniers use strategies that invoke conspiracies, quote fake experts, denigrate genuine experts, deploy evidence selectively and create impossible expectations of what research can deliver. They rely on misrepresentation and flawed logic.

..

Scepticism starts with an open mind, weighs evidence objectively and demands convincing evidence before accepting any claim. It contributes to the debate and forms the intellectual cornerstone of scientific enquiry.
