The Challenge of climate-change denial

Schendler, Auden
May 2007
High Country News;5/14/2007, Vol. 39 Issue 9, p24
The author reflects on the prevalence of climate change skeptics. He says that doubters of global warming are not serving an evolutionary role that increase group survival over time, instead, they are threatening group survival. The author foresees that the problem with the prevalence of climate change doubters is having no time to humor the issue and that the persistence of the doubters suggests a fatal obstacle to face the problem in a timely way.
