What I like so much about Funny or Die's parody PSA about "Climate Change Denial Disorder" is that, aside from medicalizing what in actuality is just willful ignorance, it's pretty spot-on.

It's not necessarily funny though, especially when one character smiles into the camera and informs us, "I'm gonna wait til more horrible sh*t happens to our planet -- and I'm a senator, so fortunately, I get to make those decisions for all of us."

That's all the more difficult to hear knowing that the vast majority of all Americans -- including half of Republicans -- support government action on climate change.
