    My point is that you know the "truth" that climate change is important, but not every person shares your view.  Reaching others from that position is not always effective because they may know a different "truth" and believe it with as much fervor.  

    That is all.  

    Not talking about rebranding.  

    Do you think opponents of climate change have been effective?  Now we have many people believing it is a myth, agaisnt all evidence.  There are reasons for that, see, e.g., Big Oil, Big Coal, etc..

    I do not know the answers.  The problem when one gets deep into an "issue" (I understand this is more than an "issue") is translating that knowledge to one who lacks the depth.  

    The folks you likely talk to a lot share your views.  Of course, climate change is more improtant than anything else because it means the earth and tremendous damage and death.  Yet, the vast majority do not see it that way.

    I have no magic answers.  But what may be self-apparent to you is not to everyone.  Otherwise the issue would not exist.
