Indeed, both Citizens Challenge and I write about it exhaustively
There’s some good resources out there on the topic. Google these:
- Skeptical Science
- Real Climate
All of these are excellent resources for understanding the science and the deniers themselves.
The sad truth is the science is rock solid. The denial movement has been very successful in confusing the public.
What is the solution? You’re asking people to give up their lively-hood the energy creates lots of jobs. Helps to keep the economy running. You’re asking people to sacrifice for something which may happen. (Some natural disaster cause by GW)
Bad solution IMO is depending on everyone else to do the “right” thing. I don’t think humans as a species have a very good track record at that.
Yes people will accept any plausible explanation so they don’t have to sacrifice. That’s not going to change, you can’t control how people think. IMO to complain about how everyone is not listening and or accepting responsibility is not solving anything.
Better to take people who understand the science. Who understand the carbon dioxide cycle and have them work on a solution that doesn’t involve waiting for everyone else to change their lifestyle cause that ain’t going to happen.
Either science can fix the problem or it can’t. Or when people start dying off in large numbers the problem will fix itself.
