I think you are all a bunch of complete idiots. You should know about history, geology, geography, and above all common sense. The only reason there is advanced life on earth is because we have an irregular orbit around a pulsating sun; an irregular orbit around the Milky Way, giant collision-cracks on the outer layers of the planet which are so powerful as to shift sea-creature skeletons from the bottom of the ocean up to the top of Mount Everest, and because plant and animal-based waste products created an oxygen-rich atmosphere, and just enough CO2 for green plants to thrive on. This chaotic rolling transformation of the Earth over 4 billion years, meant random mutations of new organisms was the only way life could survive. These random mutations (and bizarre ways of reproduction to speed up said mutations) accelerated the rise of so many species, from flora, fauna, microbes, bacteria, fungi, insects, mammals, reptiles, and eventually us. It unfortunately appears that architects are not part of this evolutionary chain, we are in a dumb cul-de-sac of our own -leading to our imminent extinction it looks like. Just about every major civilisation in history collapsed from one of two causes; corruption and climate-change. Only one of which was produced by Man. By all means cut energy wastage, reduce plastic, use less concrete, eat less, design more responsibly and have fewer children. Otherwise, don't blackmail the rest of us who are doing a damn sight more for the wellbeing of all G*ds creatures than you panic merchants with your new barmy religion. Repeat there is no climate emergency. These are the normal, slow, minor fluctuations which were anticipated by anyone who understands this planet, and are natural. Go count the sunspots over the past 15 months.
