The Irony of Global Warming Denial

Denying reality: the irony of global warming denial in one simple phrase

Climate change (global warming, global climate disruption, it doesn’t matter what you call it) has become such an idealogical and political football that some who claim they “don’t believe in global warming” seem to have lost sight of one immutable fact. Global warming doesn’t need anyone’s belief.

If nobody believed in God, would He still exist? That is a question for others to ponder and far beyond the capacity of this poor blogger. But would climate change still exist even if every God-fearing inhabitant on Earth denied its existence? Yes it would – as it laps at our disbelief, laughing at the irony of it all.
