Climate, er, Advocacy

With more and more disasters, extreme weather events,  and temperature records being broken on what seems like a daily basis, public opinion on climate change is at last starting to swing toward accepting the science.

And with denier own goals like the disastrous Heartland billboard campaign, deniers are increasingly being looked at askance.  The most vociferous climate deniers are still clogging the bandwidth, though, and becoming increasingly shrill in their attempts to shut out the truth (the scienctists got it right.)

In response to some of the more ugly manifestations of climate denial, some publishing climate scientists who are experts in their fields got together to make this advocacy video, thereby proving that climate scientists really are a rather stuffy and fuddy-duddy lot.

(Well, it’s the exception that proves the rule.  Isn’t it?)
