I no longer argue with global warming "deniers." Mark Twain long ago warned us, "Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience." Also, the problem is simply too serious to waste one's time, as we literally watch Homo sapiens headed for extinction.

I just look at the garbage we toss weekly, from a family of three, and have to switch my mental channel quickly.
