What is the real issue behind Climate Change denial, particularly in America?


I believe the real motivation for climate change denial is money. No amount of scientific proof will change their minds because they have no interest in the science. Some who deny climate change are benefitting financially from industries that add to climate change, so they want to keep deceiving the public and deny the consensus of around 97% of the scientific community about climate change. Climate changes deniers do not care about the destruction of the planet and the potential loss of life through increased extreme weather patterns. Their only interest is lining their pockets with money

    So, if I understand you correctly, you are saying, because climate science has known something is wrong with things, but has struggled in the past to get accurate data, we shouldn't believe anything they say now? Rather dangerous approach

    Thank you Kathleen. I will have a look at what you have written about it. I feel it is sad that money motivates people to the point of causing others to suffer just so they can make more.

    So, your theory isn't that because everyone won't act together, we should just steam ahead and keep wiping the planet out? Why should we stop harming the environment when someone else will still harm it? Rather selfish and ignorant approach

    I don't feel it is confusing. If someone really wants to know about it, they can research. There is plenty of information around. Yes, terms change, but political denial coming from the top is what makes it confusing to a lot of people.
