I mean. I can get behind Trump when he says USA are being exploited "to pay it all" and that countries in general should pay 50/50 for it and not give all the baggage on USA. If they say no. Well thats their problem if they dont believe in saving the planet.

But... Why does climate denial exists. Like whats the problem in actually. Hey maybe we should try save and help the planet and not be denial about it when fact checkers says that it is legit. Like Republicans and Democrats in USA should just agree on it, its so embarrassing to why some deny this.

Because climate always changes, predictions are blown out of proportion and there's a vested interest in weakening oil control.

Oil is pollution i think. With time it may change though if they invest in new ways. Like one doesnt need coal anymore to run a train. And that creates lots of co2 gas that is bad for the earth's atmosphere

Mass deforestation, urbanization, water/air/ground pollution, over hunting, over fishing, removing natural water flows/sources, and irregular migratory patterns in an attempt to avoid the former are all man made forms of climate change that have never happened before.

It made less nitrogen compounds though, coal's also easier to manage emissions wise.

Regardless, if you think climate is just changing naturally, why would you support a cause at great expense to you that gives greater political power to your leaders at no gain to you?

Prove these are happening to a man with no direct perception of these being true.

It's like trying to convince a religious fanatic that God isn't true by saying a guy in a foreign country used equipment he doesn't understand to observe something he cannot see to do something that the Bible didn't account for.

He hasn't the means to trust it any more than hearsay, and if you say the guy was given a grant to prove it, then all you've done is revealed a motive for the guy to lie.

To answer this, we need to look at who profits from climate change denial. The answer is, everyone who has a job.

They say money makes the world go round, well it does in some aspects.
