And THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is why Erin Andrews is about the best in the business.

I know it's been said before, but if anyone can amplify on - or repudiate -  my thinking, I'd appreciate it.

My pet theory behind climate denial is this.  It's not necessarily that deniers are anti-science, per se (very few of them will for example turn off their televisions or refuse medical care).  The real problem is this: if anthropogenic climate change is a real thing (and I think that it is), it's proof of a major failure in market economics.  Because we are dumping carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere at a ruinous rate, and because there is no way for the market to price the externalities, the only seemingly reasonable solution is government intervention.

Now, if you're categorically, whether philosophically or for purely mercenary reasons, opposed to government intervention in the markets, the only way for you to stop such an intervention is to simply deny that the problem is human-caused.

Where am I going wrong or right with this?
