Until recently, the climate debate appeared crystallized between those buying the science and those who didn't. I put myself squarely in the first camp. But I also belong to the camp of those believing that climate denial can be explained according to material, cultural and psychological drivers supporting it (and please take a look at what the WDR2010 says on overcoming behavioral barriers and climate communication http://siteresources.worldbank.org/INTWDR2010/Resources/5287678-1226014527953/Chapter-8.pdf). Treating deniers and skeptics as fools has not (fully) succeeded yet: let's use climate gate as an opportunity to - as you put it - do better.
