Richard Black, the BBC's on-line environment correspondent, posed this question in his on-line piece on their website today: COP15: Climate 'scepticism' and questions about sex.
I'm happy to report that my good friend, Don, who has a gift for these measured responses, rendered this typically self-depreciatory rationale by way of a reply:
"Men tend not to believe in Global Warming for the simple fact that we find it hard to face the reality that we might not be able to 'write our names in the snow' if the Earth warms too much..."
And I have to admit, I can't see how anyone might counter that with an alternative rationale.
