The problem may be one of getting the skeptics to read anything that
provides an alternative explanation. A few years ago an American friend
called Barack Obama a "dangerous socialist", and even sent me a film clip
ostensibly showing him stating he was "a Muslim".
When I visited her I discovered that my friend watched and listened to
nothing but Foxtel.
Several other friends, one a highly influential supporter of the Coalition,
believe Tony Abbot's creed that climate change "is crap".
Changing the minds of such people is very difficult indeed for they ignore
all evidence to the contrary.
