Where are the so-called ‘climate deniers’? Almost no one believes the climate isn’t changing; it always is. The issue is, what’s causing it, and is there an emergency?
It might be helpful if that embedded labelling was dropped as it leads to alienation, prohibiting coming-to-agreement through reasonable discussion. If you don’t think it’s complex, you need to learn more.
There’s no place for ‘my crowd versus your crowd’ battles, where emotions overtake the ability to get to the facts. There’s too much at stake to get it wrong, as many people could be harmed if we act hastily without knowing enough about the impacts of our decisions.
Open-mindedness and patience to listen to others is needed so we can move forward together. Now that many are waking-up to our collective response-ability it’s vital we respect all views of available evidence.
Unfortunately, I’ve not seen any opportunity for calm, reasoned discussion of all views. I know, many say that it’s already settled.
But whose word are they taking that 97 per cent of scientists agree? I’ve searched the internet and it’s clear the matter is not settled.
Anyone interested in a reasonable discussion, please contact me.
