How many times have you found yourself in a discussion where someone asks you if you “believe” in climate change? It’s a loaded question isn’t it? And you know exactly where it’s going: If you don’t answer in the affirmative you will be met with a combination of shock, derision, and scorn.
Personally I usually say something like, “Of course. The climate has been changing since the beginning of time.” If they want to pursue it further, then I have to make a decision whether or not I want to get involved. They usually only want to consider “their” facts and it usually isn’t worth the effort to engage in the debate.
To me this is on the same level as the outrage that I encounter if I dare to suggest that President Trump isn’t a blithering idiot ready to set off WW3!

This attempt by the extreme left to control thought, speech and behaviour under penalty of social ostracism is showcased in a brief clip here by Roseanne(!) I wish it wasn’t cut off at the end but you’ll get the idea. She makes a lot of sense.
It’s so much easier to give in. It takes a strong person like Kayne West or Roseanne to swim against the current.
I found the full interview! Available here.
