"... MANY people ... think they are the center of the universe."

Surely we can be more intelligent than cats!

I think MANY people live in their own little world and think they are the center of the universe.  Oh, and they're dumb. ;)

Joe Barton is a poster child for Willful ignorance. Thanks Dr. Clark.

In some cases I think public ignorance of climate change reflects our narrow view of our world. Most people don't really grasp that we live on a water planet. When they imagine temperature change, only what their home thermometer reads makes sense to them. If the air isn't getting hot as fast as it had been, they're easily convinced that global warming has stopped. That most of the rising heat occurs in the ocean can be as hard to fathom as invisible dark energy. Here's a nice comparison. source

Wow.  What tortured reasoning. Glad I decided against moving to Texas.

Wow Dr. Allan, I think you can't even begin to argue with people who think like that (in the Mother Jones article.)  He said he doesn't want to live in a country that "shakes down" people and corporations.  So I wish he'd move.

This article is about a Texas Congressman who thinks that Noah's Ark refutes climate change.

Thanks Joan for bringing Michael Marshall's article to our attention. This new data waves a big red flag. I posted a reply about it in Eco-Logical too.

"Humanity Close To Exploding Global Methane Bomb a new study indicates, reports Michael Marshall at the New Scientistas Congress Continues To Do Nothing. Oxford University scientists found that much of prehistoric Siberian permafrost melted when the Earth was only one degree Fahrenheit warmer than present. Continued warming from burning fossil fuels means it will soon do so again, releasing so much methane, a potent greenhouse gas, that the added warming will fuel further melting, further warming... uncontrolled by humans. Feeling the heat, yet?"
