Most of the “climate change/global warming” debates are in my opinion the biggest attempt at “look, a seagull!” distraction ever. Get everyone discussing things that they are unable to change while diverting away from the root causes of many of the environmental issues today.
Namely, globalisation exporting pollution from rich countries to poor ones, implementing policies that encourage the destruction of natural habitat encouraging the wasteful practice of transporting goods halfway round the world that could easily be made down the road.
Encouraging migration from the fertile breeding grounds instead of educating birth control and so on.
Globalisation is the elephant in the room, climate change is the diversionary flag.
