Tom Fletcher says “as is normal in the Internet age, the climate debate has split into two fanatical factions”. Hooey. There is no question at all about the basic science: the earth is getting warmer because humans are burning fossil fuels and adding carbon to the atmosphere causing it to retain more heat energy. That “debate” is over.
If there are “factions” here, they’re not even remotely comparable: the much larger one includes nearly all the world’s scientists and policy analysts; the much smaller one includes all the oil companies. The contrast makes it easy to choose one’s own personal faction.
