Henry Waxman’s great analogy about the denial response to climate science

From a hearing of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power [1]:

“If my doctor told me I had cancer, I wouldn’t scour the country to find someone to tell me that I don’t need to worry about it. Just because I didn’t feel gravely ill yet, I wouldn’t assume that my doctor was falsifying the data. And if my doctor said he didn’t know how long I had to live, I wouldn’t say, well, if he’s uncertain about that, he’s probably wrong about the whole thing.” [Henry Waxman, D-CA]
