The Climate Change (AGW) Meme

The experiment explained. An-example-of-cognitive-dissonance

I am not going to reproduce any of the text from Scott Adam's blog here. That would kind of ruin the experiment, and I think it's a worthwhile experiment. So, read the cartoon, react, then go look at the blog. Or not. Your call.

I have been saying for a while now that a meme is a dangerous thing; an individual does not posses ideas, ideas possess the individual. A meme is like a virus, an idea that spreads from mind to mind often without notice, let alone analysis. This was and is (you still have time if you haven't read the cartoon, reacted, etc) a fair way to test yourself to see if you are possessed by an idea. How did you do?
