Their denial fits perfectly with their support for free market economics, opposition to state intervention and hatred of all those latte-slurping, quinoa-munching liberals, with their arrogant manners and dainty hybrid cars, who presume to tell honest men and women how to live. If they admitted they were wrong on climate change, they might have to admit that they were wrong on everything else and their whole political identity would unravel.

My, my, you show a lot of hatred! I am not so sure that the liberals are the only ones who are telling folks how they should live. BTW, global warming is not a partisan thing, even though some folks try to make it so. Try to open your mind a little.

Unfortunately, free market economics does little to solve problems of pollution or resource depletion.

Re-read. My post was from an article sympathetic to the AGW cause.

On the other hand, the Soviet Union and China were wrong on communism, now they are the world's two greatest emitters of greenhouse gas.

Emitting CO2 means progress, growth and prosperity.

Why do you remaining and eager to "believe" Climate Blame "believers" exaggerate science's laughable 32 years of 95% certainty that THE END IS NEAR for billions of children? Stop fear mongering like the neocons that you hissy fit hate so much.
And get up to date;
*Occupywallstreet now does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded and corporate run carbon trading stock markets ruled by politicians.
*Canada killed Y2Kyoto 2 years ago with a freely elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (a comet hit). What did YOU do about it planet lovers?
It was never a crime for science to never say "proven" for a GLOBAL CLIMATE CRISIS but it is a crime for you "believers" to tell our children that science "believes" as much as you do.

Nothing to back up your claim but name calling.

You realize that's a sure sign of defeat or do you?

Emitting CO2(along with many other pollutants) without efficiency is building a lethargic future of unconcern for people & wasted resources.
