You can't teach those who do not wish to learn. Well said. I do not think you hot-headed at all which is why I engage in word play with you. I mistook your painfully personal experiences with political positions, et al. for being the common complaint so often expressed by others about climate deniers in general. thanks for taking the time to explain situations. Of course you pick your battles, sometimes they're in your face, and wisely stay focused on "more productive endeavors." Bravo!
