Flat Earthers ;^)

"More than 31,000 scientists across the U.S. - including more than 9,000 Ph.D.s in fields such as atmospheric science, climatology, Earth science, environment and dozens of other specialties - have signed a petition rejecting "global warming," the assumption that the human production of greenhouse gases is damaging Earth's climate." Newslink here.\\

Probably just a bunch of Young Earth, Creationist/Intelligent Design Luddites... Yeah, Yeah. That's it! These are dangerous people. Must. Be. Silenced.

All together now class. Recite the Anthropogenic Climate Change catechism:
1) The earth is warming (or cooling)
2) This time it is different than all the other temp cycles science and history have described.
3) This time it is as a result of anthropogenic inputs to the system
4) This time it will certainly be catastrophic

Good job class. Now,
* say 3 "Hail Algores"
* promise to think locally and act globally today and
* remember -- the only hope for preventing the ruin of the planet is the extinction of man.

That "semi-negative" enough for you Eddie? :-)
