  •  Much bigger than denying science papers (5+ / 0-)

    ...and news articles is denying our own experiences.

    I've spent all but a few months of my life on a 300 or-so mile strip of the U.S. East Coast.  My personal evidence of climate change is roughly 50 years of my own memories.  The written information just provides context for my own experiences.  For the past 30 years, the climate has changed in ways the science predicts.

    1. Longer stretches of hot weather, including extreme weather.

    2. Rain mainly in stormy bursts instead of fairly regular rainy days.

    3.  Warmer nights in all seasons, especially winter.  This one is most noticeable.  

    4.  Rare, very large snowstorms with long snowless winters in-between.

    The most basic tenet of science is to USE YOUR OWN SENSES!
