Everything is matter of opinion and perspective, which themselves are built on fixed base values. So beware anyone offering you 'the truth', because
whether they realise it or not, they are loaded with belief.
Seems to me belief of any kind narrows the resources to make your own mind up. The objective has to be to be detached from facts, because 'every
tool is a weapon, if you hold it right'. Something can be the most obvious irrefutable fact to everyone, until some points out we are all looking at
it from only one viewpoint (flat earth syndrome).
To me, the bigger picture is that eventually the earth will cease to support life as we know it anyway, whether the human influence is but a butterfly
in the wind, or a real significant accelerant. So if you are concerned that our environment is changing, do you think we are even remotely capable of
fixing it at the constant we would prefer it to be? Or do accept change is inevitable and remain fluid in your opinion of all things at all times.
It's not easy, but once you find this freedom, the mental ride through life seems a lot less frustrating!
So sod whether it's true that humans are affecting it, or if indeed there is any great longcycle change at all. Sooner or later we gotta get off the
planet, so why not focus on that? But then again I know smoking shortens my life, yet I still smoke. Intelligence is not guarantee of application, so
I've learnt to shrug.
To paraphrase Bart Simpson in a retort to one of Lisa's 'save the planet' righteousnesses...."ah Lisa, the planet's doomed anyway....all people
like you doing is making the last few years pointlessly uncomfortable". Metaphoric wisdom delivered in the ironic form of a pop culture bigot.
