Propaganda v Science

It never ceases to amaze me that AGW deniers believe that cutting and pasting propaganda is a legitimate way to argue against scientific evidence. Why do they do it? Could it be that propaganda is all they’ve got? As frustrating as it is, it actually makes me smile when I encounter it because it confirms for me that the person doing that has nothing of value to add. They’ve lost the argument. But lets take scientists and politicians, the two groups targeted in most denialist propaganda, out of the equation and focus on natural systems. Individual species of plants, animals, bacteria and fungi don’t have any motives in the climate ‘debate’. They are merely passengers on the climate ride, reacting within whatever physiological and behavioural constraints evolution has bestowed on them and they are reacting. Evidence is growing of more and more species undergoing range shifts in reaction to climate change.
