Climate Change Deniers — a Personality Profile
The results are in. Climate change (aka global warming) deniers are likely to be conspiracy theorists in general. In other words, if you think climate change is a big hoax — just another excuse for power-crazed socialist bureaucrats to raise your taxes — then you probably also believe:
The Earth is only 6,000 years old;
The 1969 moon landing was fake — nothing more than an elaborate Hollywood production;
Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and his birth certificate was forged by the Trilateral Commission. (Or was it the New World Order? The Illuminati?)
Since the polluting industries are being enabled by these paranoid conspiracy wackjobs, it’s easy to be pissed off at them for being so gullible. It makes you want to shout in their ears “Wake Up!!!”
But maybe these poor suckers deserve some sympathy instead. Life must be a nightmare for anyone who’s that paranoid and gullible. Maybe there’s a way to reach out to these people and try to teach them how to think more critically and not be so gullible.
Just be sure you don’t talk too fast or use too many big words — you’ll just confuse them.
