I am not trying to insult you or your intelligence, I’m just trying to understand why you have reached the conclusions you have, as I know your not alone in your views. And if the world is going to fix this issue we need to work out where and why the there has been a misunderstanding.
I think there is no point in arguing it anymore. There is no time. The best is just to ignore them completely. Sad but true. Denying climate change, anti-vaxers, flat earthers, believing in bigfoot, all makeup for a nice story, but that's just it, it is a story, nothing more.
If these people are influenced by the pro-fossil fuel lobby - can be very powerful as we have seen with smoking -, or they just don't want to change their own life, or are cynical in that they are older and will not see the end result of their ways anyway, or have any other real reason to deny science, I do not know. What I do know is that we need to act now and have no time anymore to indulge ourselves and entertain the notion that nothing is wrong. It is a stupid way to look at things, a very naive way.
