    Galileo was not the only guy that thought the earth was round. That tidbit had been settled since the ancient greeks.

    I agree - and the point I tried to make (albeit clumsily based on the response) is that it doesn't matter to me because in the end, I'd like clean air and water regardless.

    The thread was about earth day and it turned into an anti climate change fiasco. Earth day isn't about global warming - it is about taking care of the environment - and that includes clean water, clean air, clean oceans, etc. not just climate change.

    You're right Mike, I should not have used the word "facts".

    I meant something that is so verifiable, repeatable and easily observed that the average person would accept it as the truth as best as we can tell.

    The "climate change" research is politicized and is not verifiable, repeatable and easily observed. Hence the emails explaining how to manipulate the data to create the desired results from climate researchers around the world in the climategate scandal and the now disclosed distorted data relied on for the Paris accord.

    50% plus believe there is life beyond Earth, including recently, the Vatican. It would be another height of human arrogance to think we were alone in the Universe. Just as it is also a height of arrogance to think we can heat or cool the planet.

    Mike,

    I disagree. My old man would always tell me to shut the door because he is not paying to cool/heat the outside.

    My Mom was worried about wasting heat too, and she was equally concerned about the cows...'shut the door or the cows will get out'. My Mom even worried about other people I didn't even know...'finish your plate, there are kids starving in China you know'
