Climate Adaptation

CLIMATE ADAPTATION

I find this really sad. I mean, sure it’s an easy laugh. But she is being serious, and she is hurt. It’s very hard for a person to be told that they are wrong. And it takes even more courage to admit one’s mistakes. A good portion of us get off on critical reasoning. In fact, I actually enjoy being proven wrong - after all, how else will we learn! Her sort of Alice in Wonderland denialism is deeply rooted in emotional reasoning, and like a wild horse it’s a hard habit to break. She’s more worried about saving face than getting to the truth. I wouldn’t be surprised if she further entrenches into her position and even breaks the friendship. On the other hand, I can easily envision the dude, who is correct, meekly apologizing. What a topsy-turvy world!

"No, no!" said the Queen. "Sentence first - verdict afterwards." “Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!” “Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple. “I won’t!” said Alice. “Off with her head!” the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.
