A quote by Planck on "religious conversion" (A global warming thought)
This is how global warming will become common sense.
"An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by by gradually winning over and converting its opponents. It rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is its opponents gradually die out and the growing generation is familiarized with the idea from the beginning." (Max Planck)
But I bet that it will be obvious to the most casual observer before the die-hards actually die-out.
We are going to have Inhofe with us for a long, long time, I am afraid. His descendents will be surfing in Kansas before he admits he was wrong.
And before the oil and energy companies in OK stop funding his campaign.
