“Trusting in any authority but your own is shirking your most important existential responsibility.”

“ Question all your most basic assumptions about reality itself, and if it can’t stand on its own, discard it.”

Where do I start? Oh, I know: “I think, therefore I am!”

It is interesting that questioning the current dogma on Anthropogenic Climate Change always results in one of two responses: Accusation of being a “Denier” and appeals to the authority of the demigods of Climate Science, Scientists armed with the awesome power of peer-reviewed published articles! If that isn’t shirking your responsibility I don’t know what is.

For the record, I believe that Global Warming exists, but that the benefits of burning coal (longer growing seasons, Carbon fertilisation and cheap electricity) outweigh any of the likely negative effects.
