I have to give kudos to the Dobber faithful, because most of the people in here have a firm grasp of logic. I've even been schooled myself in my faulty logic sometimes.
My most recent beef is with climate change deniers.
I am far from an expert on the topic.
My beef is with skeptics who cherry pick evidence to support their skepticism, while ignoring the overwhelming evidence out there that:
a) Climate change is not only a real concern, and has been for decades, but also...
b) It's changing rapidly because of human activity
The most recent evidence of deniers slowly winning this debate came from a billboard I saw in Calgary that stated "The sun is the main driver of climate change. Not you. Not CO2."
I am curious to see how many Dobber faithful view that sort of billboard as incredibly irresponsible.
As I learn more about this, it seems obvious to me that multi-billion dollar energy companies have an obvious interest in promoting the "myth" of human-caused climate change.
Is that perception of mine inaccurate?
I fail to see the economic motivation for proponents of climate change. Is there money to be made from taking this perspective? Sure, of course. But I think it pales in comparison to the money that will be lost by oil companies should environmental concerns ever be taken really seriously.
Open minded to all responses... like I said, I am far from an expert in this area. Thanks all.
