    In the Spotlight: Explaining oil exec's denial of climate change
    Why does the western portion of this country, and the northwestern half in particular, seem to understand this so much more clearly than the rest?

    Remember when Einstein tried to silence the deniers by claiming he had "Consensus"?

    Oh, CrazyFrank, a clueless retard like you isn't fit to tie Einstein's shoes, let alone comprehend anything he said.

    There is little need to explain an oil exec's denial of warming.

    I disagree, not that the primary motivation range isn't discernible, but rather that the only way to shift the behaviors is through shifting their perspective of the issues providing that motivation. Sticks are less effective than carrots, though occassionaly combinations of sticks and carrots are neccessary.
