Still Some Room for Pure Denial

As I've said before, I'm inclined to bow to the conventional wisdom on global warming (at least with regard to its existence, causes, and magnitude) simply because I'm not an atmospheric scientist. But it's articles like this that give me pause. Groupthink is a real phenomenon, and the scientific community is not immune.

I've got bets for people with room for pure denial:


These bets should be attractive even for people who think denial is possible but not certain. Only if you think denial mostly likely to be wrong, would you not be financially interested in the bets.
