They have also sent Bucky Balls good sir.

I'm gonna start eating BuckyBalls (note that I did not say Bucky'sBalls) for longevity and anti-aging purposes. Looks like they are mitochondrial super garbagemen.

Well, I just posted something on my husband's aunt's FB post. Preparing for the backlash now.
She shared a PragerU "educational video" refuting climate change that was just....mindboggling.

She is a "christian". You know, one of those who uses religion to hide the hate in her heart.

Man, so many quotation marks in this post. lol

Man, so many quotation marks in this post. lol

Perhaps the most mind-boggling aspect of denialism is the very common idea that climate change science and politics are all some big conspiracy to rip everyone off or form a world government or something. I even heard that one from my sister, who is a college-educated professional. In reality, the facts go against many Americans' preferred politics. That is by far the simplest and most probable explanation.

It only goes against them since nobody bothered to educate them on the matter. On the contrary, there are numerous pressure group having a vested interest in keeping the population stupid. Same as with socialism vs social.

I have worked with a "quasi-denialist" who is a Phd meteorologist type. His was not so much in denial of global warming as much as the cause. He says we lack enough time-series data to determine the impact humans have had, if any, on global warming. But even he understands why we might want to reduce our own carbon footprint. From an ignorance perspective, the prudent thing to do is still to reduce activities that are not helpful in the long run.

Is his thinking along the lines of correlation without causation? We been tracking CO2 levels in the atmosphere for quite awhile, the 1800s I think?

My question for him would be "if it's not humans, what's the cause?".

He thinks it might be part of the natural cycle. NOAA have been keeping records since the late 1800s. He thinks that's pretty recent. And if you factor in reliability, maybe even more recent. But he agrees there is no point in taking chances - in any case.
