That's true... but what I've noticed is that far too often, the people who call themselves climate skeptics aren't skeptical at all; they are absolutely credulous-- to anything they hear that denies the reality of global warming. Garbage articles that could be debunked in two minutes of thinking get picked up and passed along with notes of "see? it's all a HOAX!"

Most people who are worried about climate change are absolutely credulous-- the read garbage articles that could be debunked in two minutes of thinking and they pass it along.

You can tell that most people aren't looking at the science because of how cleanly opinion is divided along political lines. I'll bet I can guess which political side you favor, too.

Based on experiments (with gas in tubes and lights shining through them), a doubling of CO2 will result in a ~0.9 degree increase. This is not controversial, and even skeptical climatologists accept it. It's also not very scary.

The reason some climatologists predict a 6-12 degree warming is because of feedbacks (warming melts ice leaving dark earth behind, and dark earth absorbs more heat, etc). These feedbacks are significantly more controversial, but also more scary.

Since there's no pulp to push, the economics of the price are astounding.

If ads were more intelligent and higher class, they wouldn't be so annoying. Nothing like continuing to see ads for something you bought, or putting up with taboola's brain-dead stupid tricks.

Ads should be as good as the articles they parasitically feed off of.

It's not cheaper. Stop buying the lie. I've had managed service companies flat out tell me that since they started reselling cloud over internal infrastructure, their revenues have tripled.

Good point.

The one exception would be in very small business; under 20 people

To be fair, there are quite a lot of those.
