deniers cannot be reasoned with, and there is quite literally no approach to explaining science to people who genuinely believe that human sexual conduct has any bearing on the weather or earthquakes or volcanoes.
which is why, there can be no respect given to people because they have religion.

Conservatives who dismiss science might see climate change differently if exposed to messages that evoke the more verdant past rather than an apocalyptic future, according to a new study.
“The trick is to present a very positive past standard, and then draw attention to the less positive present,” said Matthew Baldwin, a post-doctoral fellow in psychology at the University of Cologne, whose latest research appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The scientists theorize that “future framing” may contribute to conservative cynicism, especially “when year after year, we don’t seem to get that close to death,” Baldwin said. “Conservatives might become rather skeptical of the science that led us to the conclusion that we are in trouble. Perhaps focusing on the possible negative future doesn’t drive home the fact that our Earth really has changed a lot.”
This strategy might also counter the argument often invoked by conservatives that today’s global warming is just another example of natural climate variations that have occurred historically.
reality doesn’t care about human laws
adapt and mitigate is our only chance
by their environmental impact
and by their employees
a safety culture and better engineering
and they have to go somewhere
which is, into ground water
it’s not my country, so I can say that… post that.
The memo sent to the Energy Department on Tuesday and reviewed by Reuters last week contains 74 questions, including a request for a list of all department employees and contractors who attended the annual global climate talks hosted by the United Nations within the last five years.
