      who think there's a guy in a beard in control of everything

      some humans can nit pick all they want and make all the excuses they want for why the glaciers and icecaps are melting until it's too late.

      in the meantime rational humans have to get over the old and try something new real quick on the very real possibility that we're fucked if we don't.

      At that point, the backtracking into excuses of what actually causes the warming begins and rational discussion flies out the window.
