The new form of denial is to continue the myth that it’s way too expensive to do anything or say, “hey, what’s wrong with some debate.” It is denial to ignore literally decades of very clear and alarming science, and then argue for going slow when we have no time.
If I recall correctly, in the year 2000, “98% of all Climate Scientists” had endorsed a UN document that said that by this time (2017) a third of the world would be swimming to work.
The reason why you see people wanting to “go slow” is not because they don’t believe the science; it’s because we don’t believe the politicians who are telling us what we have to do to solve the problem.
It’s not a science problem, it’s a trust problem. And it’s one that the politicians and the scientists created together by their manic drive to solutions which require massive increases in the size of government agencies which are already too big.
