By appealing to consensus, Believers concede that they have no empirical evidence to support their hypothesis that humans (primarily through CO2 emissions) are the primary cause of global warming.
I would put it much stronger than that. There are issues arising from an insane identification of humankind and its agendas that are much more destructive than the GW scenarios. And because 'trouble at home' is hidden by diversionary tactic of trouble OUT THERE - almost no one is looking at what and where the core problem is - and if they do - and somehow find some way to articulate it - almost no one is willing to listen - because it is the direction of associations we are conditioned most to avoid, and undermines the persona we have so much investment in as a way of denying what we most hate or deny in ourselves.odin2 to binra
Exactly. The myth of AGW is distracting from and sucking resources away from real environmental problems.
