Whenever I see the words "climate denier", I reach for my bullshit
I have some sympathy for your view, Bill. It is a sloppily term, and
should at least be "climate change denier." It is however a long time
(at least a year) since there have been any concerted attempt to deny
that our climate is changing - we went from any evidence being 'just
weather' or "short term weather change', to admitting that climate has
changed in the past and is now changing - the emphasis then went to it
being 'just nature' - pointing to crude comparisons with previous
climate change but denying any effect from human actions. Now that the
effects are becoming more severe, we are moving towards the view that
while humans may have affected the nature of the climate change that
is underway, humans are unable to take any effective action to
mitigate those changes, so we should just ignore the whole issue and
continue to burn fossil fuels and allow the wealthy to make further
profits while we can. I suspect a lot of people share your desire for
an effective bullshit repellant, Bill.
