    Re: The psychology of climate change

I fully grasp that Gore is a self serving hypocrite, but this last bit strikes me as superfluous:

poll numbers that show 20% of Americans have changed their minds over the last three years and become man-made global warming skeptics.”

 

consider that against this backdrop:

Charles Darwin would have been 200 tomorrow, an event that Gallup is marking with a new poll showing that 39 percent of Americans believe in the theory of evolution. A quarter say they don’t believe in evolution, and 36 percent say they have no opinion.

I wouldn’t use american public opinion as anything like a barometer of truth when it comes to science. 

 

And I’d be EXTREMELY wary of using any article from infowars as a source.  I peruse their pages, but I do so with full consciousness of the fact that they routinely get things wrong, fail to source, twist headlines, and in general, do poor research.  To me, they’re like a rumor mill – a bunch of guys you hear talking smack at a bar.  They may carry an occasional useful story (like when they were fed the MIAC documents), but other than that, their information is extremely sketchy.  ALWAYS consider it rumor, and then verify elsewhere.
