Why it's hard to change a climate denier's mind

Started by Adriana. Last reply by Chris Sep 2, 2017. 29 Replies

This is an interesting blog from James Hrynyshyn, who is a communication expert who writes a science blog called Class: M. I guess I never viewed it this way, but it is intriguing. The idea is that a human effect on climate is hard to believe because it runs counter to thousands of years of human belief, not just biblical but in other cultures as well, that climate is something so huge and beyond our human purview that it is totally counter-intuitive to accept that we could indeed be having…Continue

Dealing with a Harsh Reality

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I question every action I have taken to help the planet, and, there by humanity, and the animals I have shared this planet with. Like many of you I have taken many steps in my life to protect our home. I became vegan 22 years ago, and was a vegetarian the previous 37 years. I rode bicycle every chance I got instead of driving a car, I got into solar cooking to use the suns energy instead of the carbon industries fuels. Of course I recycled. The…Continue

The Past was Worse 

 

Back in Those Days, an Oil Spill Went Completely Unnoticed

That ain't Texas, and it sure as hell isn't Saudi Arabia. That's the modern home of hippies and Priuses -- California, as it looked in 1928 (specifically, Huntington Beach). Back in those days if you ran across an otter that wasn't covered in oil, it was considered a source of shame for the community.

TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE

How we can save environmentalism—and ourselves How we can save environmentalism—and ourselves image

In a recent speech, Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger presented 12 theses of environmental thought, which they hope will supply "underlying assumptions for a new, post-environmental climate movement." Let's discuss. READ MORE

Don't Let Congress Roll Back 40 Years of Environmental Protections

Republicans in Congress are attempting to repeal fundamental environmental protections by attaching hundreds of amendments to a stop-gap funding measure.

Fascinating lack of knowledge exhibited by Rand Paul on the Daily Show - we do not need regulations because our environment is getting cleaner - completely forgetting about the EPA
"Doesn't the government have a role though, in keeping business practices honest," Stewart asked. "Would our food be as healthy and clean as it is if we hadn't have had the Pure Food [and Drug] Act or the FDA?"
Paul then began to argue that things aren't actually so bad, and that the government is overstating the problems it must regulate.

"We need to acknowledge that the air is actually much cleaner than it was 30 years ago," Paul said.

"But that's the Clean Air Act," Stewart shot back.

Throughout the nearly 20 minute-long interview, which waxed wonky at times, Paul repeated his argument that a more limited government, coupled with lower taxes are necessary to spur economic growth and balance the budget.

A Product Of The Past

2896415892_f69c403ab1_b

Ken Layne comments on the GOP's cost cutting ways:

“Foamed polystyrene” is a miraculous invention that manages to be completely awful through every step of its near-eternal “life cycle” — it is manufactured with petroleum that must be imported from Middle East dictatorships, toxic “styrene oligomers” migrate into the food it holds, it’s highly flammable and produces black poisonous smoke, and most of the 25 billion polystyrene cups tossed every year will take more than half a millennium to degrade. And that’s why the Republican-led House of Representatives made it an immediate priority to cancel the House cafeteria’s four years of biodegradable food and beverage packaging. 

Brian Merchant joins the pile on:

[Styrofoam] is fully and wholly a Product of the Past, with, in my mind, no place in modern society. Which should tell you something about the environmental attitude of the leadership that's making a show of bringing it back.

Meatless Mondays are a great idea. It will cause an uproar though.
