3. Yep. Sadly, some people really still do believe that.

Of course, as I've said so many times before, some of the wacky out-of-left-field stuff coming from the absolute fringes of our side hasn't helped much(if you've been over to E & E more than occasionally in the most recent 7-8 months, btw, you may remember a particularly way out of wack claim made by one Malcolm Light, in which all life on Earth, even us, would be dead by the middle of this century.....), mainly due how it's been used against us by those who keep the disinfo going(Monckton, Christy, et al.), not to mention that it makes our jobs harder, in many ways.

But, IMO, if we want to get to the core of the problem, we need to keep exposing the facts about who's funding AGW denial(and yes, actual denial, folks), why they're doing it, etc. That, more than anything else, will help to stifle, and perhaps one day, eradicate, the pedaling of the outright bullshit, like "The Earth is cooling", "We are too insignificant to affect Earth's climate", etc.....

Yeah, it's gonna be tough. But there's guys like the Skeptical Science folks, and yes, even our very own GreenMan, dedicating their time to helping get the word out. And frankly, we need more of them.
