Folks on the Left have always been accused of arrogance by the Righties. If we dare to question their take on anything, we are charged with arrogance. Just this week Jeb Bush said we were arrogant about climate change. Back when his brother tried to sell us a fake war rationale, we were arrogant and even unpatriotic for daring to question his "facts".
Webster defines arrogance as:
"an insulting way of thinking or behaving that comes from believing that you are better, smarter, or more important than other people" (link is external)

It sure seems to me that the folks on the right also have a tendency to display arrogance if anyone dares to question their take on any issue, but especially the climate change issue. What do you think? Is it arrogant to believe that humans can affect our climate?
I agree with Steve Benen, who wrote,
"What’s actually arrogant is the belief that confused politicians can ignore a scientific consensus on a global crisis."
So, are we arrogant for thinking the climate change deniers are Neanderthals? http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/jeb-bush-calls-climate-debate-new-hampshire
Let's make sure that climate change is one of the debate topics. Let's grill them until they are well done!
