If 73% of Americans believe in climate change, what about the other 27%? Who are they and how can you spot them? Get out your binoculars. Here’s a rundown of the major species.

  • The Flat Earther (Flaterus Worlderus). Usually spotted at Home Depot buying sheetrock to build an underground bunker to protect self from hoardes of liberal environmentalists they believe are coming to get them. Wears a tool belt, goggles, and leather gloves. Is vehemently anti-science. Sometimes seen in gatherings with Fake News Fanatics (see below).
  • The Fake News Fanatic (Rush Limbaughomius). This species spends most of its time in motionless repose like its cousin the now extinct Couch Potatus Uninterruptus, fixated on observing its fellow fanatics on FOX NEWS who spout hatred toward environmental activists. Proceed with caution; may be armed and extremely dangerous. Has been known to attack when it feels threatened by the liberal left and tree huggers.
