Do we want to take mitigating preventative measures or just wait til the crocodiles are "taking the young in the night"?
exactly, having one side declare imminent total apocalypse and the other side burying head in sand pretending nothing is going on doesn't help anyone, especially when both seems hell bent on pressuring/twisting the science to fit their view, instead of letting them find out what's really happening.

But hey, it'll all be pointless in another few weeks
