Comment Senator James Inhofe (Score 2) 282

Senator Inhofe is a well-known climate change denier. That he is in such a position makes me want to weep.

(See eg http://www.desmogblog.com/jame... )

For counterpoint book recommendations, I suggest:

'The Merchants of Doubt' by Oreskes and Conway

'This Changes Everything' by Naomi Klein

Turns out that if the cure is worse than the disease people don't want the cure...

Some people seem to be 'denying' that that actually is the rational attitude.

Interesting. Where did you get that quote?

Turns out that when people don't like what they're hearing, they act as though they heard something else.
