Climate skeptics don't deny science

Challenges to climate "deniers" are misplaced


With respect to beliefs, I suggest maybe alarmists beliefs about the controversy are predicated around their desire to raise taxes, increase government regulations, impede capitalism and reduce national sovereignty.

Maybe skeptics beliefs center around an aversion toward the federal government moving on those issues until climate science is more settled than it is now. In the meantime entrepreneurs can explore potential solutions to energy issues if the reward is worth the risk.
