    Years of toiling away for what's truly meager reward for the work, considering how difficult it is to do right, how important it is to our civilization, and how they could be making literal fortunes on Wall Street if they so chose...

    Seriously, it's what the conservative climate deniers believe.

    For a comprehensive climate guide, see Real Climate. For denier debunking resources, including smartphone apps, see Skeptical Science.
