I'd say it was more the idiots (like politicians or from oil companies) who either denied it or said a warming world had benefits too, like less people dying from the cold. So let's kill more people with extreme heat and unpredictable weather instead...The frustrating and infuriating aspect of this is that I recall reading The Sixth Extinction ( by Richard Leakey) in the mid 90s that demonstrated--25 years ago--that scientists already had strong evidence of this happening. That's 25 years ( and who knows how many species) lost because people don't want to change.
Interesting to see this piece on the PETM - and how the warming then occurred at a slower rate than today:
