This is something I've been thinking about for a few months now, but have
not said anything about, as I did'nt really see the point in doing so,
however do to the recent influx of certain threads, I thought I'd bring it up.
Now I've been here 2½ years, and in that time the (primarily American)
publics and governments stance on Artificially Induced Climate Change,
more commonly known by the misnomer of Global Warming, has changed
a great deal, going from the majority denying it to the majority accepting
In that time it seems that the trend has actually gone through a reversal
of that, it used to be that many more people accepted AICC, and
generally believed between it was half our fault and completely our fault,
and considered there to be a conspiracy of AICC being covered-up or
ignored, and indeed that is true to some extent, as can be seen with the
Bush administrations editing of climate reports to make them less
threatening. Now it seems that has done a complete 360º, as the general
public and government accepts AICC, many people here now do not
believe in AICC, and even consider there to be some massive conspiracy,
ranging from corporate greed to a global taxation system.
Now of course this is not true for all, I myself have not changes my
opinion, throughout AICC being denied by the general public and it being
accepted, I have not waivered from my belief (I say belief simply for
political reasons) that AICC is real and it is between 70% and 85% our
fault, and there are several other individuals, from both sides that have
not changed either, but it does seem that many newer members seem to
side with the idea that AICC is a conspiracy.
After considering this, when it comes right down to it, it seems that many
individuals here seem more willing to believe in a conspiracy rather than
the truth, whats more is that not to long ago the situation would have been
the opposite, though the conspiracy factor would have still existed.
To simplify this, it seems that many people want to believe in a conspiracy
(perhaps to feel special or unique from the general public) than the truth.
