Ignoring the Fire

Imagine you saw flames engulfing a house. You broke in and saw a family seated around the dinner table. You shouted Your house is on fire. You have to get out immediately. However, the people just sat there. The mother said, But we haven’t finished dinner. Besides I don’t see any flames yet. That is how the bulk of the population reacts to the danger of global warming.
