You must really enjoy your arguments with bloombergofthesouth?
I think I'm done with this place. It's pretty clear the evidence that people want to hear and what evidence they'll ignore. I used to think that "the proof is in the pudding" would eventually win out. More and more, I find out that within a lifetime, marketing has become the new king. Republicans and Democrats have perfected the system by playing both sides of a coin and offering it as the only choices from which to choose.
Like much of what I've come to find out, some of the most intelligent people I've encountered are some of the stupidest people I've known. For all of our "knowledge" the greatest need for a scientist is no longer science/knowledge, but something to feed their egos. For that, you have to have a "worthy cause" to invest in, and then commit to it with varying degrees irrespective of how it circumvents the scientific method. What this latest cause has become is little more than religious zealotry to feed the new pope's opportunistic monetary and power grabs.
In the meantime... so many people will keep holding their collective breaths for this climate catastrophe and eventually jump ship when the next chic Armageddon for them to "know about before anyone else" comes along.
