25. But freepers' minds can't hold the concept that snow in Jerusalem and Greece can be caused by global
warming. A couple freepers I know think every snowflake that falls completely disproves "global warming." The fact that Australia is drying up in the middle while coastal towns are getting two months' worth of rainfall overnight -- doesn't register with these people as climate change.

Another problem is, many people seem unable to differentiate between "climate" and "weather" -- so they equate "climate change" with "weather change" -- so they reply airily "climate is always changing" and think we're getting upset that it rains one day and sunshines the next.

And since their ignorance keeps them happy, they choose to keep their ignorance.
