And So My Friend Says: “I don’t believe in Climate Change.”

Nothing burns me more than to hear someone I consider to be fairly intelligent, so ignorant when it comes to something so obvious. Recently while discussing something on a TeamSpeak session engaged in a game of League of Legends, I bring up Climate Change in passing, just referring to something else. He responds with, “I don’t believe in climate change.” “Huh? You don’t believe in climate change?” I reply. To which he says, “The jury’s still out, the evidence seems pretty weak.”

This starts a short but heated debate, but ultimately I don’t feel like arguing while trying to play a game, so I just shut up about it right now. But it gets to me thinking how is it that conservatives can function in a world with such contradictions fixed in their minds. The conservative is perfectly ok with telling themselves that a creator, for which zero evidence exists is working his magic all the time and has been forever, however something like climate change, something for which reams of evidence exist and is well established as incontrovertible, but yeah the jury’s still out on that…

Some changes, pushing forward

I had promised some new updates, but my illness began to make my life more difficult. I began having to decide if I could put the time in that it would take to research and write articles. So for the longest time with no real energy the blog sat. This is never going to change. I know that I am not going to get better, only worse, thus I am pushing forward anyway because the alternative means I will never get anymore written.

I cannot wait for my illness to subside enough to make it easier, it's never going to get easier. So instead of writing large articles that take a lot of my time and energy to write I will write smaller, hopefully more concise articles, or split the load of much larger ones into smaller individual work.

This will hopefully allow me to get more out to be read. Soon the Saucy Blog will have new content again.
