Yes, Mr. gcaveman1, many who lack the education to understand the scientific CAGW literature do deny the claims of the "believers" (a great way to describe yourself and others of your faith).It's all psychology here, with "deniers" and "believers".
The deniers are fearful and paranoid, and feel this new thing threatens them or their lifestyle.
"Believers" accept the scientific consensus and believe action should be taken.
It's emotion versus logic.
Emotion always rules the mob. Logic is the province of the solitary thinker.
Deniers will inevitably convert their actions,if not their philosophy, when being green makes a positive difference in their checking account balances.
"Believers" are winning every day, and lies don't matter.
As a heretic of The CAGW belief system, I share SOME of the positions taken by many "deniers". One issue is that the "believers" claim the opinions of some men of letters are elevated to the status of 'fact' and 'truth'.
*Bill McKibben of 350.org who said we are going to be in big trouble when CO2 hits the 350 mark
*well its now at 400. So the time line for complete disaster in some studies is only 15 yrs away
*U ARE SAVING THE PLANET HERE!
*Once the tipping point is reached there is no going back.
*This is fact
*CO2 will cause more severe weather.
The inconvenient truth is every science academy in the world agrees that the claims made by "the believers" are
NOT "fact" and "Truth".
Scientists explain their work using qualifiers such as "suggests", "could", "likely", "may"', which clearly means they are expressing a collection of opinion. "The believer" then bestows those opinions with the values of "Fact " and "Truth" thus elevating their belief system to a religion... so deny all you want but this IS a religion.! The ones who have made CAGW into a religion are the (using your own word) "believers".
May you and your fellow apostles someday learn that it is wiser to be skeptical of your science and have faith in your religion... Rather then the other way around.
