Public listens too much to media asshats, mostly Rightedia - Faux News, Limpballs, the entire gang of clowns who back the Deniers.

As long as those cretins can cast doubt on any aspects of warming and climate change ('Look, it's COLD outside, it can't be WARMING!!') they think they've "won." And to some extent, they have....they've dumbed down the public further and made change harder to manage.

Heck. The public that believes in clowns instead of scientists deserves to be called fools.

""This is about something much deeper. It's about identity, about values, it's about emotions, and if you don't know that that's what you're dealing with, you will eternally be frustrated when you provide them with more and more facts and they don't respond the way you think they are going to."

This is the meat of the article. Party it is a false ideology (i.e conservatives rejecting energy efficient light bulbs if they are 'good for the environment') and the lowering of wages which makes the bulk of the population 'too busy surviving' to care much about ANY issue.
