Candid Confessions Of 635 Former Climate Change Deniers


Who is the enemy leading us to Climate Catastrophe?

Before beginning, a note is in order. No one is claiming Kirk’s analysis is scientifically or statistically valid. Nevertheless, it is a useful tool for understanding the factors climate change deniers base their beliefs on.
