"The era of Donald Trump has caused an eruption of climate change deniers coming forward, directly in the face of the overwhelming consensus of the world's scientists that climate change is real and human-caused.
This type of belligerent denial has now infected the very highest level of our government. The official policy of the U.S. government is distraction, denial and delay, and doubling down on our headlong exploitation of dirty fossil fuel energy.

This talk explores the scientific evidence of climate change, why we should care about climate change denial, and the often absurd efforts by special interests and partisan political figures to confuse the public, wage a war on science, attack scientists, and deny that a problem even exists..."

Nope. Outsiders of the Church of Global Warming have always existed as long as the Church of Global Warming existed.

Consensus is not used in science.

Define 'climate change' without using circular definitions. Science is not interested in meaningless buzzwords.

Good.

Fossils don't burn. We don't use them for fuel.

There is no such thing as 'scientific' evidence. Science is a set of falsifiable theories, not any kind of evidence.

of climate change,
Define 'climate change'. You keep using this meaningless buzzword.
monckton wrote:

The Church of Global Warming is a fundamentalist style religion. The only you care about an Outsider is that they are the great Satan of your religion.

Inversion fallacy. It is YOU that tries to deceive.
monckton wrote:
wage a war on science,

Inversion fallacy. Is it YOU that denies science, specifically the laws of thermodynamics and the Stefan-Boltzmann law.
monckton wrote:
attack scientists,
Compositional error.

A buzzword is not a problem unless you try to worship it and force your religion upon everybody else.
