My post title is a quote from global warming denier Pat Michaels (beneficiary of Cato Institute funding) who is in the 2008 video below. Though he is a global warming denier, he is explaining to his audience, that the Earth is actually warming.
His point, is that arguing that the Earth isn't warming, is an "argument you can get killed on". He is encouraging his audience to take more deceptive means to stall any sort of legislative action on global warming.
His audience? The global warming deniers at Heartland Institute.
