Ever tried to explain something new to a person with a strong and opposite opinion, while he holds a high self-esteem and confuses geology with algebra, engineering or electromechanics?
I'm pretty bright myself according to some other people, but I wouldn't expect anyone else to accept my irrelevant credentials in science, arts or school for a debate regarding climate change.
What's the point, why can't you folks with high self-esteem just stick to the facts and go for the ball instead? Or do you just try hard to reclaim lost ground in this discussion with big emotions, while appealing to hierarchy?
Frustrating? I think it's rather funny to see you folks getting frustrated about something like this thread. One has to wonder why you do what you do, while emotionalising politics (once again).

I get that - all the "everything is exactly like it is supposed to be at all times."
I agree with it.
I just wanted to have a conversation - and there is no harm in recruiting others to think things over. Just ignoring it instead of doing whatever we/you can to minimize it isn't my gig.
It reminds me of religious people who say, "Well, it's all predetermined. No matter what I [we] do, there's nothing that's going to stop this horrendous sequence of events ---- and then ......
JESUS WILL COME BACK! So, I don't give a toss."
Yeah - carry on with that way of thinking....
I prefer to not do that.
If that's okay with you.
