    Deniers will chalk this up to another episode of crying wolf. Science is practically irrelevant. Global warming has become an ideological issue rather than a scientific one.

      like the anti-marriage equality people, or like the berlin wall.

      who would've thought that marriage-equality would be mainstream in 2004? I didn't even know it was an issue back then, but now the dominoes are falling, as Kos just posted.

      young people, at least those who get a decent education, all know why the climate issue is so important and that it's a settled scientific question.

      i keep hoping it's going to be a sea change of popular sentiment as more and more of the kids become adults, and more and more kids start pushing their parents.
