Place where we can berate those who shy away from the bleeding obvious.

Ha!

As a government employee, where do I start, and how long have you got?

I'm struggling to imagine what you might have had in mind.

Are we going to shy away from them or talk smack about them?

Because I'm not keen on the firing of all those tax inspectors in London despite them bringing in tax revenue many times larger than their salaries. Though I suspect that's not out of ignorance but rather an intentional blind eye....

The thought came about cos of bem with her nasty headaches and us urging that she should go and see her GP which she ignored. It's all her fault. ;-p

I must confess to being not a million miles from that myself. That the climate is changing is pretty undeniable. That it is any of our doing is something I am yet to be convinced about. Sorry if you find this ostrich-like, but I believe what I believe.

Are you convinced that the rate of increase of climate change happens to coincide with the rate of increase of industrialization & burning of fossil fuels?

Fair enough crissdee, and you're obviously entitled to your opinion. But when 98% of climate scientists disagree with you and the rest are paid for by the oil industry, don't you think it's worth a closer look at why that 98% disagree with you?
