It’s Because of Al Gore
The thing I’ve never understood is why the average right-leaning, possibly Fox News watching citizen does not understand that the things we would do to combat climate change are good things to do anyway. They seem to be more worried about the fact that Al Gore is involved in some way then to stop and think about what the benefits would be. Why would we not want a cleaner, less polluted Earth? Why would we not want cleaner air to breathe? Do these climate change deniers ever stop to think what they are denying? They aren’t denying Al Gore some victory, they are denying themselves (and everyone else) a better planet on which to live.
I realize that not every denier will cite Al Gore as their reason for not believing climate change is real. But that is irrelevant to my main point. Al Gore is simply an example. Whatever the reason, my questions above still apply.
