They exist. They always have, and they always will. The good news is, they don't sneak up on anyone. We have warning systems in place and they tell people days in advance ...
You nail it all on the head. If it's not destroying the sanctity of their own home, they just don't care. They can easily turn a blind eye and act as if nothing is happening. That's how people have become...they just want to live in their luxuries and not be bothered. Until a storm comes along and rips their own home apart or kills one of their own children, they shall remain ignorant!
No it was coined as the theory developed and evidence proved that CO2 isn't the only greenhouse gas and the effects of increased CO2 have various knock on effects with some areas of the globe rapidly warming and others being plunged into mini ice ages.
It's how science works. The only people arguing against AGW are scientists on big oil payroll, it's an established fact amongst all other Climatologists.
...Science does not work by repeating talking points and making generalizations that support a desired outcome. That's politics that uses those tactics.
Back in 2000:
Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past.
Get This: Warming Planet Can Mean More Snow.
That's simply not true, just last week the most destructive greenhouse gas so far, Perfluorotributylamine, was discovered and implications mapped out.
Meta studies have been conducted on anti-AGW papers which discovered Exxon-Mobil, BP and Royal Dutch Shell financed the studies.
For example Koch Industries are one of the leading firms publishing data claiming AGW isn't real and renewable energies aren't efficient. They also also own oil refineries, oil pipelines, fertiliser plants, cement works etc...and spend $12m+ per year lobbying US politicians to sell their lies to the public.
More research would have revealed it's man made...
...lasts in the atmosphere for around 500 years and has the 'highest radiative efficiency of any compound detected in the atmosphere'
While you're entirely right in pointing out the fact water vapour is more destructive and plentiful but it lasts in the atmosphere for days at most, with C02 it's several hundred years making it alone contribute more than 65% of emission caused warming.
