I distributed the Miller-McCune article: "Why Isn't Climate Change on More Lips?"- http://bit.ly/vl17wI - to several very intelligent, very rational people who don't spend much time in the Climate Science world. I asked for feedback about the article and whether it reflected their views.
I'm quoting one of the responses as representative of the general feeling below.
"read it...i think it is right on point. it describes alot of what i personally feel.
not so much denial...but the hopelessness. after you know you are going to die, then you
just wait for it. the sense of powerlessness is overwhelming."
Time to work on messaging, doncha think?
