attitude problem

What we know: climate change is happening, and human activity is driving it. As someone somewhere else has said, you can be intelligent and deny that, and you can honest and deny that, but you cannot be both.

But in the last few months the media has devoted huge attention to highlighting some mistakes in the vast amount of data that has appeared and in publicising some blatant misrepresentations of the science.

Now the media reports that there's been a shift in public attitudes about climate science. (And this, the hottest January on record.) There's a surprise.
