You're familiar with the Five Stages of Grief? Well, this is in that vein.
- Denial: "Nothing's happening, it was cold this winter!"
- Conspiracy Theories: "It's all a plot by climatologists to get more money! Never mind that oil companies make more in a day of drilling than climatologists earn in their lifetimes!"
- Partial Denial: "It may be warming, but that's perfectly natural! No evidence it's anthropogenic! Any evidence to the contrary is still a conspiracy against business!"
- Positive Spin: "This will turn out to be a good thing! You'll see!"
- Enraged Acceptance: "Everything sucks now! Why didn't you WARN us?! Stupid scientists!"
