What's the deal with people who insist that the climate isn't changing? It's definitely changing, according to NASA (http://climate.nasa.gov/evidence). But maybe you think the climate change conspiracy is part of the Moon landing conspiracy (possibly in conjunction with the Trilateral Commission and the Illuminati). In that case, my only advice is to keep your tinfoil hat on tight, so they can't read your brainwaves. Oh, and good luck with that, since the same conspiracy replaced tinfoil with aluminum foil decades ago, just because it's less effective in brainwave blocking.
By the way, NASA also says that "Most climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect"", so there's that. But again, conspiracy, and whatnot, so maybe it's all "Benghazi" and "Area 51".

+Martin Lewitt OK, you caught us. It really is a global conspiracy to keep you from driving your SUV.

It seems like some people will deny that government had any role in building something unless they see elected officials in their suits and ties literally wielding a shovel or driving a bulldozer. That's not how it works. Nobody is seriously saying that's how it works.
If you say you built something (by yourself), I hope you built it on Venus, because "government of the people, by the people, for the people" has been most places first.

If corporations have the same rights as people, why are we allowed to own them? Isn't that slavery? We certainly shouldn't be able to deny them their inalienable right to life, that would be murder.

where are you at?  - 
 
I drank a bottle of Trader Joe's Margaritas today. I think I did it because I'm afraid of being bored. When I have a buzz, things seem more interesting and/or amusing. I don't think I have a serious problem (did I really say that?) with alcohol, since it's not currently impacting my work, marriage, or anything else that's important, but I am concerned that I can't seem to go more than a few days without drinking, and when I do, it's seldom just one drink. When I do go several days without a drink, I do feel better. I sleep better, I have more energy, and I am less disappointed with myself.

I feel like I would be better off if I gave up alcohol altogether, but I don't know how to explain that to my family. They all enjoy having a cocktail before dinner, a glass of wine or beer, going wine tasting, etc. I am sure they would be supportive, but it's still hard to know how to start that conversation.

+Harrison Denmark ... Thanks for posting as it opened the door for the replies that helped me. Notice the "Me" came before "You" .. wait, I never did say you.  LOL!  Gotta love a selfish drunk!!  I hope the ES&H from the responders did help you out.  It's good to see things from another's perspective.

The vast majority of biologists around the world accept evolution as the most reasonable and useful explanation for the biological world as we see it. The vast majority of climate scientists agree that the Earth's climate shows a long-term warming trend, which is caused by human activity.
One U.S. political party is on the wrong side of both of these issues, which have nothing to do with each other. Why is that?

"Long term" is just a couple hundred years, and "caused" by human activity overstates the case, "contributed to" by human activity is closer to the consensus.  And projecting 1 degree C of warming over the next century is closer to what is justified by the current state of the evidence.
