10 Failed Climate Change Denial Arguments
If you think the climate isn’t changing, well, I’ve got some bad news for you. It is. Of course the climate’s changing. It always does. The problem is on top of that incredibly slow natural variation, the climate is changing due to human influence, and it’s changing fast. Droughts, floods, ice caps melting, fires raging out of control, temperature records broken on a daily basis: This is the new normal. That hasn’t stopped people from denying the change, and in fact seems to stoke them like dry air and heat waves stoke wildfires. Rebutting the reality-challenged challenges to reality is a full-time job, but Hank Green makes it look easy. Green — one half of the Vlog Brothers — claims he loves simple, powerful ideas. I believe him. I’ve watched a lot of his videos, and his ability to discuss complex ideas in bite-size pieces is manifest. But he recently put out one which simply slams the door shut on ten climate change denial arguments, elegantly and with much alacrity. (via 10 Failed Climate Change Denial Arguments.)
