Denying Globull Warming Is Like Denying Galileo Or Something

Treehugger brings the funny deranged, based on a funny deranged story from the conservative leaning Politico on Tuesday….wait, “conservative?”

There’s really no rational way a human can dispute the fact that the vast majority of the world’s scientists believe that greenhouse gas emissions generated by man are warming the climate. It’s one of the most important findings of modern science, and it’s supported by an impressively massive body of evidence. But, as you know, many politicians — who represent large swaths of the nation — are in outright, public denial of these findings. As are innumerable leading industrial interests. Journalist Mark Hertsgaard has a question for them: How long do they really want to deny a scientific finding as important as Galileo’s discovery that the Earth revolves around the sun?

Today, in the conservative-leaning political newspaper Politico, he writes the following:

Well, I guess when one’s political leanings are so far left as Treehuggers, The Politico might seem to be conservative leaning.

The rest, both from Treehugger and Mark Hertsgaard, are simple boilerplate on the subject of consensus, which isn’t, you know, science.

    Well ya know, a heck of a lot of people used to think the earth was flat. And if you have ever driven through the midwest states, OH IND, IL etc, you may still agree with that. But on that subject, the science is pretty much in-especially since air travel- the earth is round.
    And it has billions of years of an everchanging climate, as it twirls through the universe with the big ball of fiery gases at it’s orbital center. The only thing I will agree upon, is that the climate changes. Repeatedly. And there’s nothing we can do about it.
    The rest of their premise is flawed; I am in denial of nothing that has been proven. And trying to make normal thinking people (aka AGW Deniers) think like they do is never going to happen.

  2. Excellent points, Trish. But, since it is a Cult, the climate morons will never listen, and, rather than them having to prove their science, you have to disprove it. Sad, isn’t it?

  3. Trish says:

    Yup, quite sad. But what’s saddest, is that they don’t care how much damage they will do to the economy of this country; while others, an 3rd world countries won’t be able to comply, and no longer receive our aid or charity, when we go broke!

  4. They think they’re doing something noble for Gaia, but, of course, they expect that That Other Person will have to pay up, not themselves.
