Polarized opinions on global warming

I walked in recently on an intense group discussion about global warming.

One person in the group was very passionate that global warming is a complete hoax.

After about 15 minutes of debate, name calling and boastful statements...

Finally I said...

The real issue is that we need to treat the environment better. What we're doing now globally isn't sustainable and hasn't been for some time. We need far better, far more thoughtful discussions, expectations and action about how we use energy and how we treat the environment. Is there really any debate that we should increase our efforts to pollute the environment? The sooner we act the better.

Everyone nodded. The person who was convinced global warming is a hoax nodded and said...

"Yup. That's the truth. I agree."
