    Four Deniers To Avoid

    The four types of climate denier, and why you should ignore them all

    Damian Carrington, 230 July 2020 (UK Guardian)

    “…It is becoming increasingly clear that] those who deny the reality or danger of the climate emergency should be ignored…The science is clear, the severity understood at the highest levels everywhere, and serious debates about what to do are turning into action. The deniers have nothing to contribute to this…However infuriating they are, arguing with them or debunking their theories is likely only to generate publicity or money for them. It also helps to generate a fake air of controversy over climate action that provides cover for the vested interests seeking to delay the end of the fossil fuel age…[Deniers] tend to fit into one of four different categories…[The shill is almost always] paid by vested interests to emit clouds of confusion…This uncertainty creates a smokescreen behind which polluters can lobby…

    [The grifters] just warm their hands on the outrage, count the clicks and wait for the pay cheque…[The egomaniacs] are desperate for recognition…[and] make increasingly extreme pronouncements…[The ideological fool can be intelligent, but is utterly blinded by the] inane, no-limits version of the free-market creed…The climate emergency requires coordinated global action…[Deniers] could explore the many credible climate action plans…The world of finance and business is catching up fast with the science, and almost all the technology needed already exists. In short, no sane or serious actor can countenance denial of climate danger. Bad-faith arguments motivated by greed, egomania or ideology have nothing to add…” click here for more
