In de­nial

The Saturday Paper - - Letters & Editorial -

Thank you, Gad­fly (“Emis­sion de­nied”, De­cem­ber 8–14). Throw­ing light on the cli­mate change de­nial­ists and ex­pos­ing their nox­ious dis­tor­tions ren­ders a wor­thy com­mu­nity ser­vice. The peo­ple re­ferred to by Gad­fly are not stupid, as far as I am aware. Their per­fidy is that they are per­fectly ca­pa­ble of com­ing to grips with the truth of the science and its im­pli­ca­tions. In the ab­sence of a plau­si­ble ex­pla­na­tion one can only as­sume they fear any im­ped­i­ment to their ac­cu­mu­la­tion of more and more wealth. As such they ab­so­lutely de­serve our ridicule.
