Denialism’s Ugly Roots

climate-cartoon

It seems blindingly obvious that the rich and powerful wish to maintain their wealth and power for as long as they possibly can, which means, at best, continuing business as usual for as long as possible—and the environment be damned—and at worst lying and even killing when required in order to maintain their wealth and power at the expense of other humans, other species, and the biosphere. So this group has profound and obvious psychological, emotional, and practical motives for attacking those who threaten their power positions by producing evidence related to global warming or ecological collapse.

Worst of all are the hired antiscience astroturfers who infest the comment sections of every article on environmental issues, posting FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) about the science. The devil damn them black.
