Re: How are we going to save the planet?

A general flaw with humans is that we tend to believe what we want to be true. Why else would there be so many frankly implausible religions that attract millions of fervent believers, when there is absolutely no hard evidence that any of them are based upon even a grain of truth. Conversely we are often all too eager to reject a mountain of indisputable proof if it doesn't conform to what we want to hear.
