Re: Global warming scientists failed again
Here's the bottom line: There is irrefutable, overwhelming, empirical evidence that: a. The planet we live on is approximately 4.5 billion years old. and b. Greenhouse gasses produced by human activity are warming the planet.
There are people, a lot of people, who believe the planet is no older than approximately 6,000 years and that human activity is in no way, shape, manner or form causing the planet's temperature to rise. They are people of the same ilk as those who blamed natural disasters on witches and considered the notion of a heliocentric universe to be heresy in the 16th century. They are always going to be among us and they are not amenable to changing their beliefs.
