I don't think anyone got the joke.

By being truthful and honest and not using emotion to make your case. There is nothing other than adaptation that will be possible, and of course there are many other man made factors involved other than just burning fossil fuels. Not to mention other factors that are really not understood.

Probably not just Americans. Watched the scenes in Oz, very sorry for everyone affected but couldn't help notice the irony of nearly everyone driving a big SUV. (I know the roads are rough in some places there and some people need them, but not everyone surely?

No, no, no. Climate change is a hoax created by the Chinese.

Baby steps. First prove to them that their tax dollars are subsidizing the cattlemen and fast food industries because the US Department of Agriculture is in cahoots with Big Business and, after you are shaken down by the Extortionists, your extorted tax dollars are applied to "subsidies" which mean that you per force have already partly paid for your fast food purchases, the prices being set artificially low. Because until the public is smart enough to comprehend that statement, they will never be able to understand what you are saying.

Unfortunately we have an entire generation brought up with horse **** conspiracy stories - that'll just about kill the American dream - the republican party's most significant accomplishment...

I'm not sure you can educate them directly. Fossil fuel companies should be prohibited from spreading misinformation. This may involve criminal prosecution of management, if necessary. Other than that, we should insist that science be taught in all 50 states, rather than the pseudoscience they teach in the Bible Belt.
For the most part, though, people will see the dangers of climate change in the disasters they hear about every day in the news: Australia burning, California burning, Texas and North Carolina underwater, etc. The most politically obsessed of our population--people like JimZ--cannot be persuaded by facts, so it's just a matter of waiting until they've died off. By and large, the people that reject the science of climate change are well past the median age, so it won't be long. In a couple of decades, the only ones rejecting the science will be in the memory care side of retirement homes.

How do we educate Americans who have been indoctrinated by a leftist cult that pretends a degree or two of warming is going to cause a catastrophe and that is assuming we have even caused it. Most of the warming is night, polar, and winter. I think even someone like you should be able to research that and confirm it and then consider is it really that bad that the winter temperatures are bumped up a bit. Is it really worth giving our freedom and money to a bunch of elitists thieves because the climate has moderated a bit?

By ignoring the political climate science spread by an ignorant mainstream media and following the true climate scientists that monitor the natural variances of the SUN.

97% of scientists agree that fossil fuel created climate change is doing great harm to our ecosystem.
Most EDUCATED Americans agree with the scientists. Indeed, anyone who completed a decent high school chemistry course understand how the Carbon molecule behaves and what happens when it combines with gaseous elements.
The US Republican Party, some religious fundamentalists, and the fossil fuel industries are the only entities in the world that deny it.
