"David, you should explain for everyone how it should be done. It is easy to criticize, but what's the solution for the communication?"I don't think it's really a problem of communication....
100 years of consensus on evolution hasn't changed half of Americans' minds.
So why will a decade or two of climate data?
I don't like this, but it's a fact. I really wish everyone was amenable to data and scientific papers, but in America many people are not. They aren't.
Perhaps it's because our education system is mediocre. I also suspect there is some failing in our national character, something about being independent and revolutionary and adventurous and skeptical of institutions.
Why will global warming be any different? For whatever reason, a lot of Americans simply don't care what scientists think, and this problem is getting worse, not better.
And if not worse, not clearly better.
So what will change their minds?
More warming, more heat waves, more droughts, more storms.
When grandfathers say to their grandchildren, when I was a kid it was a lot colder and snowier, and it seems like all that is gone now.... When midwestern farmers accept the seriousness of the drought they are in, and when they leave the business because of it. When snowpacks diminish enough that people actually leave the American southwest because its water can't support them any longer.
Like I said, I don't like this. But I think it's the case.
