    Because someone who denies something actually believes what they're denying but they're ignorant. In most cases, I've noticed that most of them don't really believe in what they're saying. Instead most "deniers" I've seen in my lifetime were just corporate shills who value the fossil fuel industry more than everything else.

    This is how people like Marco Rubio can come forward and say he believes climate change is happening but it's not man-made. As it gets harder for them to claim nothing is happening, "not man-made" is the next phase of their argument. Because you can't admit the truth and agree we're responsible then purpose we do nothing. Yet doing something might cost people like Charlie and David money.
