Climate Change Denialist and Their Denial

At this stage it should be getting hard to disagree about the impact of our treatment of the global environment. The negative changes are slowly creeping into place. Difficulties are growing. Tension slowly mounts.

But, hey...


There is a range of denial amongst those that deny Climate Change. There's the arrogant denial that the world is beyond our capacity to severely harm. There's the denial that bad things can arise from nature. There's the denial that something that benefits us can also do long term harm. There's the denial that arises from fear that it's too late. There's denial that arises from fear that making the needed changes would just be too hard, and not worth the inconvenience.

And then there's the best type of denial that money can buy.

But rest assured, those in denial are ready to deny anew any fault once Climate Change's full impact hits us.

What do we do? Some will never accept the need to act. Some will never accept that changes are needed. Some will never listen to someone different from them, in look or thinking.

The comic above is sadly to apt. And I am at a lost.

GW ended before 2001. Measured average global temperature trend since 2001 has been flat and is 0.3 K less than 'consensus' predictions. That 0.3 K is 40% of the total rise in the 20th century. Since 2001, the CO2 level has increased by 30% of the total increase 1800-2001.

Two natural drivers have been identified that explain measured average global temperatures since before 1900 with 95% correlation. CO2 change is not one of them.

Search using key words AGW unveiled to discover the drivers and a graph of what they predict.
