As the Worm Turns - The New Climate Deniers

Advocates of sustainable development and increased efficiency and productivity in the planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance of facilities and infrastructure need to resist hitching their wagon to the global warming train.  

There's a reason cheerleaders for the cause switched labels - from "global warming" to "climate change" - a few years ago.  They were staring down the barrel of temperature readings that showed NO WARMING, but they didn't want to see the BILLIONS AND BILLIONS in subsidized research funding evaporate.  The jig is just about up and we can now get back to real issues impacting the environment like pollution and excess waste of finite resources.

The article excerpted and linked below does a good job of explaining the cognitive dissonance on the rise among champions of the idea that humans are responsible for global warming / climate change.  Oh the hubris of it all!

The new climate deniers are the liberals who, despite their obsession with climate change, have managed to miss the biggest story in climate science, which is that there hasn’t been any global warming for about a decade and a half. 
“Over the past 15 years air temperatures at the Earth’s surface have been flat while greenhouse-gas emissions have continued to soar,” The Economist magazine writes. “The world added roughly 100 billion tons of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO2 put there by humanity since 1750.” Yet, no more warming.
