    LOL so you think that you can have a little Monday morning anti climate change win because you claim that the structure of my post was clunky and ineffective ? OK enjoy.

    The point is that there are experts, such as surgeons and pilots, and then there are 'experts' such as climate scientists and economists and other analysts of data. One group we trust because they can prove their expertise. The other we trust because they tell us what we want to hear.

    There's no climate change winners. It requires a coordinated worldwide response that is impossible in a world in fierce competition. We just need to learn to live with it.

    It's a good thing that you're not in charge, Charlie Brown.

    Nobody is 'in charge'. That's the central fallacy underpinning every conspiracy theory.

    Best to err on the side of caution and do our bit to curb emissions, but only a dumb shit confuses weather and climate change.

    If you think I was just being pedantic you've missed the point.

    Of course it's being pedantic.

    I said flippantly "It's a good thing that you're not in charge, Charlie Brown." And you fire back with "Nobody is 'in charge'. That's the central fallacy underpinning every conspiracy theory."

    LOL WTF Literalism at it's best.

    So you don't believe anyone is able to make the decisions required to influence climate change?

    With every stupid GIF your credibility slowly dimishes.

    I’d say it’s f**king bullshit, but I’m meant to be the happy one.

    So it’s very exciting.
