Nature itself appears to have shown that the claim of man-made, catastrophic climate change is a myth, and the disillusioned believers of such dire predictions are acting out in ways that clinical psychologist Festinger documented in a group devastated by the failure of the predicted arrival of an alien spaceship in December 1954. He coined the term “cognitive dissonance” to describe the coping mechanisms used by the members of this group. In layman’s terms, the “Say It Isn't So" song title by Daryl Hall & John Oates, describes the response by group members.
Sixty years later, cognitive dissonance is expressed via more vituperative mechanisms. Simple denial is displaced by vicious counter attack. The rage of the queen in Alice in Wonderland (“off with their heads”) is vocalized by leaders of the manmade, climate change cult. Former vice president Al Gore at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas March 2015: “The former vice president focused on the need to ‘punish climate-change deniers,’ saying politicians should pay a price for rejecting ‘accepted science,' said the Chicago Tribune.”
