The "Feel Good" Approach to Climate DistortionBy Joe Brewer
The Rockridge Institute

Tuesday 11 September 2007

An article published today in the science section of the New York Times clearly demonstrates the importance of frames and narratives when discussing important political issues. John Tierney's article "Findings: 'Feel Good' vs. 'Do Good' on Climate" is currently among the most popular articles of the day. This widely read article is filled with distortions, redirections, and spin designed specifically to undermine public acceptance of one of the gravest threats we face as a global community.

Comments such as this...

Alarmist environmentalists are naïve children who don't really know what is going on. They are out of touch with reality. They have repeatedly bombarded us innocent victims with tales of disaster and doom.

Humans are the intelligent animal, but not very.
