TIME: Doubting Global Warming Theory Equivalent to Thinking World Is Flat

Jeffrey Kluger says global warming deniers are like like people who question moon landing

TIME’s Jeffrey Kluger: Doubting Global Warming is Like Believing the Earth is Flat (Newsbusters)

If you deny global warming, you are on par with those who believe the Earth is flat or the moon landing never happened, at least, according to Jeffrey Kluger, TIME Magazine senior editor for science and technology. Kluger appeared on Saturday’s CBS This Morning to discuss the recent trend toward warmer weather.

Co-host Jim Axelrod asked Kluger if the record-setting temperatures of the past year would finally end the debate among scientists over global warming. Kluger responded by slamming those who question manmade climate change: “Well, I think of the folks who are the climate deniers as the flat Earthers and the people who say the moon landings never happened.”
