Bronwyn Lay says: "One is a climate change denier, the other a believer..."
I think she actually means Anthropogenic Global Warming sceptic (realist) and believer (alarmist). If she asked any of the realists, they would tell her that they agree that climate changes, that climate has always changed.
So, both sides of the argument should be described as climate change believers.
The confusion came about when the alarmists realised warming had stalled and had to find an alternate term to global warming.
As a Masters of English Lit, I'm sure Bronwyn would prefer to use correct terminology.
