Awesome: We’re All Climate Deniers Now

So says Mary Pipher at Time

We Are All Climate Change Deniers

Almost all of us minimize or normalize our enormous global problems

Would you be shocked that this article is in the psychology section rather than science? I’m not.

I’ve learned not to argue too long with people who do not “believe in” human-made climate change. I figure it’s impossible to reason someone out of a position that they didn’t reason themselves into. But the fact is that even those of us who do believe climate change is man-made are in partial denial about our enormous global problems, and almost all of us minimize or normalize the situation.

Most Warmists do not want to discuss this with non-Warmists, because Warmists tend not to have facts on their sides, and one can’t argue for long when they’re only armed with talking points.

Our denial is understandable. Our species is not equipped to respond to the threats posed by global warming. Humans are built to find food and shelter, reproduce, and enjoy each other. We are genetically programmed to react to threats by fleeing or fighting, and at first, our environmental crisis does not seem to allow us to do either. We’re better at dealing with problems that are concrete, close-at-hand, familiar and require skills and tools that we already possess. Our global storm is invisible, unprecedented, drawn out, and caused by all of us. We have Paleolithic arousal systems, Neolithic brains, medieval institutions and 21st century technology—not a good mix for solving our climate problems.

She should probably see a fellow mental health worker to deal with her hysteria. Then try digging deep into the science, facts, and history. But, she won’t. Warmists cannot be dissuaded.

    The key word is “believe”. You believe in a religion. You don’t believe in science. Either you prove your hypothesis or you don’t. As these people can not provide raw data to have it checked by unbiased individuals, then they can not prove anything.

    Geez.

    Our species is not equipped to respond to the threats posed by global warming.

    or are we..

    We are genetically programmed to react to threats by fleeing or fighting

    Which is it? Are we equipped or not?

    Seems like 21st century technology IS the answer to a changing climate? But, no, these CAGW’ers want us to live like its 7BC.

    Either we fix our problems using technology and free market principles, or we cut our economy by Trillions of dollars in productivity.

    It’s the CAGW’ers that are deniers. THey want to deny us our right to freely progress and grow and pursue our happiness.

  3. Exactly right, David. These Warmists are Believers, as unhinged as Jim Jones and his followers. And they all want us to drink their kool aid.

    They want to deny us Everyone Else our right to freely progress and grow and pursue our happiness.

    Fixed that.
