Yeah and now we like to call ourselves highly evolved with all the technology & knowledge at our disposal yet plainly this particular message is one that some have chosen to ignore. A lot more ignored it as well after the financial meltdown, like as if it would stop being a threat because we don't have the money to deal with it.<quoted text>
I'm pretty sure that there were Romans 2000 years ago who argued that "there's no proof that people are being poisoned by the lead water pipes" right up until lead poisoning killed them.
To me it is like Religion, if science came up with positive proof that God did not exist. Then the only ppl you would convince are the current atheists. Talk back radio jocks and Murdoch news media seem to have adopted this world wide kill the climate message now for a number of years. What's worse that credible organisations like NASA get treated like the non believers in some extremist religious sect by those same deniers. It's like turning back the clock and making believe we are just venturing out of the cave.
