The anxiety and conflicting reports of global warming may be too much for many people. It is indeed hard to change personal habits, but it takes only two weeks to break a bad habit.
If the threat appears to be long-term and/or unmanageable, only the most capable individuals can manage the emotional distress. More anxious individuals will resort to reactive thinking for reassurance and anxiety control. A recent study found that conservatives tend to be more anxious and less able tolerate conflicting facts and ambiguity, than are liberals. Greater anxiety makes reactive thinking and outright denial of dangers more likely.

That's pretty much the standard liberal diatribe, isn't it? ... so they resort to personal attacks and insults.
