Climate change deniers would have you believe that climate change is completely made up. Unfortunately for them an overwhelming amount of actual scientists have explained why it is indeed very real. And they’ve done so using scientific evidence and actual data about rising temperatures and changing weather patterns rather than the illogical arguments, pseudo-science, and downright mumbo-jumbo of their antagonists.
Honestly, scientists have been very patient, perhaps too patient, so it’s deeply satisfying to watch a climate change denier, who is operating either from sheer ignorance or cynical bad faith, get publicly owned for that ignorance or malice.
So here are a few examples of climate change deniers that will warm your heart more than a sunny day in February.

“just to cover my bases, I eat legumes and vegetables like my nutritionist told me and I also guzzle paint straight out of the can on the advice of a guy I once saw screaming on a corner. I think both sides have their points.” https://t.co/vPAI8InpzK

Plot idea: 97% of the world’s scientists contrive an environmental crisis, but are exposed by a plucky band of billionaires & oil companies.
