Recognizing climate change is happening is a step forward, I guess. But refusing to examine the reasons is crazy.
Just a few years ago, those beholden to the fossil fuel indutry claimed the climate was not changing at all. Now these same people who led that misrepresentation can’t deny climate change. So they simply shoft the goal posts to not being caused by humans.
Thus we see Trum, who once wrote that climate change was a Chinese hoax.
So he now acknowledges the world is warming but believes in some mystical, unknown process that is doing this, rather than being caused by humans.
He has no evidence that this mystery process even exists. The only support comes from his own desperate wish that AGW is not true. Like many who live in their own reality, wishes are more important than facts.
Feynmann described the process in a speech. As I wrote, he “discusses the sorts of magical thinking everyone wants to believe in but for which there is no evidence except our wishes.”
Cargo Cult worlds are based not on the real world but on lies. And the more facts presented, the more people will retreat into their illogical Cargo Cult World.
One that becomes less and less likely to be able to adapt to the complexity of Nature.
That path leads to social collapse and extinction. Living in a fantasy world is crazy. Being led by a crazy man would be catastrophic.
