Coexist

I see these bumper stickers on cars all the time. It makes no sense to me. You can’t coexist with people that intend to do you harm because of the things you think and believe.

For example, I think the scientific questions surrounding the idea of anthropogenic global warming are unresolved. There are a lot of people who believe the Goracle, but when it comes to actually proving the question, I think what has been presented thus far falls short. Over time, as temperatures rise, or don’t, and more data is collected, the question will be better resolved.

That’s not good enough for James Cameron, however. He wants to kill me for not believing in global warming.

The “Avatar” director was equally unsparing in his comments about those who don’t accept global warming as fact. “That’s right,” Cameron said. “I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads.”

James, it might be time to see a therapist and get on some medication until you work out those anger issues. You can afford it and it will give you something to do while the scientific community studies the climate.

Coexistence is what the farmer does with the turkey, until Thanksgiving.
