The alarmists are in denial

I see signs of panic from George Monbiot. He admits that his side it losing the race to convince the public about Global Warming, but he is in denial (ironically) that it is about the science.

People are not as thick as his colleagues disparagingly assert ("room temperature IQs" maybe he means in degrees Kelvin?). We can see that the temperatures are flat or going down, even as CO2 levels keep rising. And the hyperbole from the alarmists is harming their own cause.
So he resorts to a straw man argument about old people.
Good grief. He should face facts.

Interesting he says things have swung into sceptical circles so dramatically and then tries to convince us it's the 60+ age bracket that's caused this.

Do we suddenly have truckloads of older generation people buying up large quantities of books on the subject and blogging or writing websites about it (so they can be surveyed by Desmogblog)??

Somehow, I don't think so...
