Climate science is not a matter of opinion. It is a fact. And those individuals, organizations, and corporations who flagrantly continue to push out messages that aim to persuade us that fossil fuels benefit humanity are driven by one thing and one thing only: profits over people.
So why in the world do people believe in these deliberate falsehoods? Because these organizations are spending massive amounts of cash on campaigns that reach millions of hard-working Americans who are scared about their future. They poke fun at climate scientists and try to laugh off the consensus that humanity is in danger. In a recent article on the CO2 Coalition’s website, Michael Dorstewitz promotes discredited scientist Dr. Patrick Moore’s statement that the “misguided belief that CO2, the basis for all life, is a dangerous pollutant that will cause climate catastrophe and even end the world.”
Folks like the CO2 Coalition, funded by the Koch family and the Mercer family foundation, lead the charge by creating easy-to-digest videos, campaigns, and articles that knock what they call “climate alarmism.” They claim, falsely, that additional CO2 will be a net benefit to humanity. No joke, they claim the world needs to burn more fossil fuels.
Why do people believe in climate denialism?
