The trouble with trusting complex science
There is one question that no one who denies manmade climate change wants to answer: what would it take to persuade you? In most cases the answer seems to be nothing. No level of evidence can shake the growing belief that climate science is a giant conspiracy codded up by boffins and governments to tax and control us. The new study by the Met Office, which paints an even grimmer picture than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, will do nothing to change this view.
I'm particularly baffled by the finding that when such people are confronted with actual data that contradicts their beliefs, they tend to commit even more profoundly to their falsehoods.
