Having just watched the History Channel show Last Days on Earth, I heard a beautiful yet disturbing way of describing global warming denialists; when you want to talk about the Holocaust of WWII, do you bring out people who deny that it happened even though it did? Well, when it comes to global warming, thats what Fox News does. Let’s just repeat the tobacco companies CEOs testimony in front of Congress denying that nicotine and cigarettes are addictive. Global warming doesn’t exist, the Holocaust never happened and cigarrettes are safe are three lies that need to be thrown into the garbage.
Still, I think that humans will respond positively to the threat of global warming but only when the pain is very apparent and the denialists are looked at like the ideologic dinosaurs that they are. We can reverse this and make a great world better. We are such a unique planet who can save ourself from a comet, create the Internet and fly to outer space yet the one thing we need to protect ourselves from is ourself. Gain some moral standing to say that our world and our children’s world is worth saving. We need to be honest enough to admit our errors and do something about it. I have faith in our world. Do you?
