Even if I stipulate that warming is real (and I don't) but say I did,there is nothing short of going back to living in caves and ditching cars for horses that might (but probably won't) change things.  So, since radical change is not possible than I suggest true believers need to adapt to the coming crisis because it is inevitable and unstoppable.

How do you adapt to the crisis if you do not accept that a crisis is coming?

I won't, I live 40 feet from the water. I think I will be there forever. You, and others like you are welcome adapt any way you see fit. Sell your property, move inland, buy a Tesla, whatever makes you feel comfortable. Me, I'm staying put.

That's a great way to formulate social and governmental policies!

My way is a reflection of how the public really prioritizes this issue. This is not an important issue to people in general so the formulation of public policy is glacial, and that’s just fine with me.

Again...seems like a poor way to create social/governmental policy.

It shows there is no need for any. Again, in a kinda libertarian way, no one is keeping you from taking any means you see necessary to protect yourself and your family from the coming apocalypse.

Agree that it's the libertarian POV...just seems like a poor way to establish social policy.

But the fact that there is no public support for immediate action indicates they don’t see a need for immediate action or social policy.  They just don’t believe or don’t care.

Like most things in life, it is generally a bad idea to set policy or make decisions on a reactionary basis.

Or lack of reaction?  Are you advocating taking action without consent.

It's like communism, you're being liberated whether you like it or not.

We have a republican government...consent is implicitly given to the representatives.   Policies should seldomly be made in hindsight or in reaction to things.

It's like the ultimate phantom slippery slope...somehow proactive policies means communism.

Seriously...people must have been jailed in gulags in a past life.

But don’t you see that it is that exact unilateral attitude that gave rise to trump? The “you masses are children, too uneducated and unsophisticated to understand your own peril that we will do for you what you are too stupid to do for yourself.”...look what that got ya.
