What will global warming deniers do in 2010?

It's early 2010. If Lindsey Graham's support is any indicator, the US Congress will have passed a carbon cap and trade system. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=ArRAlagOThQZh2uRcnQ3wnfsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20091011213821AA8QJkw Further, the US will have signed a carbon reduction agreement in... show more It's early 2010.

Further, the US will have signed a carbon reduction agreement in Copenhagen. As we all know deniers are in denial for political reasons, these political losses will be a huge blow. On top of that, 2009 will have been approximately the 5th hottest year on record, even in the UAH satellite data. The early months of 2010 will remain hot, particularly in the lagging satellite data. All this despite the longest solar cycle minimum in a century.

What will deniers do in this scenario? Once they've already lost the political battle and the global temperature data continues to remain at near record levels, destroying their favorite "it's the Sun" argument, what options will they have? We know they'll never admit AGW is correct, but will they become more belligerent, or will they fade into the darkness?
Update: Geez jim, the American Conservative Union ranks Graham as one of the most conservative senators. If you don't think he's conservative, then who is?
Update 2: pachl - last I checked, the Soviet Union collapsed about 2 decades ago. Nobody at NASA agrees with your claims, and your link to a technology blog (always my favorite source for climate science!) is nearly 2 years old.
Update 3: "didn't you predict 2009 to set a record?"

No, I predicted a 50/50 chance that 2009 or 2010 would set a new record.
