  •  There is a guy (0+ / 0-)

    here in WNC who is constantly "proving it" w/ opinions in the local paper.  Problem is most of the local yokels are into conspiracy theories and government takeover that they pretty much believe the gobblely-gook he presents as 'evidence'.

    I'm no scientist (he is) so it's difficult for me to present the cogent argument against all his 'facts and figures'.  So only true bit of ammunition I have is sarcasm and that's too complicated for the local yokels.  What we have here is a real conundrum.

      Stick with simple facts. The ice is melting and the sea is rising and turning acid. (Although <snark>not in Oklahoma</snark>.) Storms, floods, and droughts are getting worse, even in Oklahoma. Renewable power will soon cost less than carbon. It already does in Australia. Wind and solar will create permanent non-polluting jobs that cannot be outsourced.

      Don't tell them this bit:

      We have nothing to fear but fear itself.
      Except among Republicans for whom lack of fear is to be feared above all else.
