Talking amongst my friends and family, I have often referred to the climate change deniers in my country, Australia, as ” a bunch of angry old white men with too much time on their hands”.

They are the people who secretly know they are right, who vote Republican or UKip [insert your regional idiot right party here] and always lean right and see everything through polarised sunglasses. Don’t get me wrong: they are not secretive about their opinions- they know they are right internally. Their religion is right, their politics, their argument, one could go on- but what makes them angry [and white and stupid and men] is that most people don’t think they are…. continue reading here.
