I know people who have hesitated to jump on the political bandwagon of "global warming" have been extensively bashed in the media and on social sites like facebook. "How could they not believe what science is saying?" is the usual refrain.
Now even the top scientists are saying, "Well, uh, we're not going to be warming for 30 years and, well, maybe 50% of the last decade's warming was natural, not man-made." http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/01/11/years-global-cooling-coming-say-leading-scientists/?test=latestnews
So that's an interesting turn of events. And it parallels what a lot of very intelligent people I personally know have been saying all along: the Earth goes through natural warming and cooling cycles, and while we're not denying there has been a warming cycle....we are debating the "it's all man's fault--now you rich countries have to give everyone else billions of dollars" approach, and we're hesitant to say it's never going to change to a cooling cycle ever again.
So there you have it.
Even the news is saying it, too. Now.
