The straw man of climate change denial

Climate change deniers consistently attack a straw man: the supposedly “dogmatic” belief in that which they deny. After 25 years of interest in the topic of climate science, I have yet to run afoul of any dogma from people who share my confidence that the Earth is getting warmer, and that it is probably — not necessarily, but probably — due to human activity and the burning of fossil fuels. I have seen only earnest concern and curiosity.
