Unable To Comprehend Global Warming

Mankind is setting himself up for some unimaginable grief because he cannot understand global warming. The layman personally experiences a wide local temperature swings throughout a year and so can’t appreciate what a catastrophe even a few degrees change in average global temperature implies. To the willfully ignorant, global warming sounds a bit like Monty Python’s comfy chair torture device. Were it not for Hollywood, he would similarly pooh-pooh the global havoc a meteorite a small fraction of the size of the earth can do.
