Here is where I'm going with this.
Climate change is such a hot political issue that I think it has clouded people's true beliefs.
There are lot of people who have bought property in these areas, paid big bucks for it as well.....and if asked, they will say "yes, I believe in man made climate change".
Do they? They really believe it?.... because to say you believe it is just words and we all know actions speak louder than words. If these people TRULY believed it then WTF are they doing buying property where they KNOW it's a big risk.
That sounds like only something a denier would do and although I have no evidence of anybody's political ideology who bought any of these properties....reason tells me that homes bought in many of these areas such as the Atlantic Coast, Florida Keys, California, etc....many of them were bought by climate change believing liberals.
This is the paradox. Enlightened, educated, successful people believe in climate change.....trailer house dwelling rednecks do not. Which group do you think is more likely to be buying properties in these areas?
What I'm suggesting (not declaring or knowing....just suggesting) is that many many many people SAY they believe in man made climate change......but only because they are uncomfortable of being labeled a denier. It's too socially taboo to not admit you believe it.
This issue is so damn political that it's more about socially acceptable political views rather than truly accepting the scientific reality of it.
That's my point.....and it's just my 2 cents.
Now....you can all respond with your rage and intolerance.
