Thanks for the invitation to Hang With Friends. I'm not a member because I'm not the groupie type. I'm very solid in the INTJ personality type per the Myers-Briggs type indicator test. That type is very introverted. As such, my posts are usually very scientifically oriented instead of casual. Nonetheless, thanks again for the invitation.
Patricia, thank you for the beautiful sparkling bouquet of flowers. Doesn't seventy eight sound grand! Old enough to have some wisdom and young enough to enjoy living. That is just about as good as it gets!
Ignoring the obvious for their own gain. Whether financial, political or religious. I find the climate change deniers more prevalent in the religious but that's all I'm exposed to are religious people. This is a sad place to be. But it's where my family are at. Even though they are the religious ones I'm talking about..
Do you find it as difficult as I to believe people don't believe in global warming? Here, in coal country, global warming is passed off as a hoax that's perpetrated to steer people away from mining coal. Never mind that the mine owners are now using mountain top removal as a way to reduce their cost by using fewer people. As few as ten when they needed several hundred to work underground and did far less damage, Now they destroy the land and pollute water.
