Climate deniers push path of destruction
With the last 10 summers each entering the record books as the “hottest summer ever,” deadly wildfires destroying lives and property out West, hurricanes and torrential rain storms wreaking havoc in more lives, homes and businesses on our East Coast, not to mention the steadily rising sea levels as Greenland and the polar icecaps turn to liquid disasters in a fastapproaching future, you would think that even the most die-hard climate deniers would accept the reality of climate change, one that 99 percent of climate scientists attribute to human activity on our fragile planet.
And though it seems to many of us believers that there is a conspiracy amongst certain political parties and corporate interests to end any and all regulation that interfere with their profits, and that regulations are more accurately considered to be protections from those who put their incomes ahead of the health, the safety, the ver y lives of the rest of us, the climate deniers, charter members of the “flat earth society,” cite discredited studies when they push their minority agendas to continue on the path to destruction we are all currently on.
Mike Finley asks the same question I have about his political par ty: “Could it be that (the Republicans) don’t want you to know all the facts?”
