While climate change realists have a nick-name for climate change skeptics--"Deniers"-- which neatly links their cause to those people who claim the Holocaust didn't happen, they did not until recently have a corresponding word for us, the vast majority of Humanity that understands the science and the need for action.

So naturally I hit the publish button by accident. The origonal quotation comes from here, though, about seven or eight comments down.
