  •  The problem with global warming (3+ / 0-)

    is that for nearly two decades the battle has been environmental activists carrying the message from science vs a well funded denialist operation.
      If we want to move the issue into the politcal issue and solve it, we need a program, as in: Here's the problem. Here's the proof. Here's what we propose to do about it.
    That moves the issue into "What should we do about this problem?" Rather than this sterile debate about whether there is a problem in the first place.
      Let the denialists explain exactly why they're against solar power and thicker insulation, or higher gas mileage requirements.
      As it is, the denialist industry has made claims that we're advocating some vast restriction of freedom and/or massive tax increases.
      If people understand that we're proposing small, relatively inexpensive steps, we'll make a lot more progress.
