Climate change is an “Opinion-Product”

Inspiration, 48 X 36 inchesI am sure I am not the only person who has noticed that critical thinking appears to be in short supply these days… not just on the issue of climate change, but in general.

Our little epoch is marked by a tendency for people to adopt and internalize prepackaged opinions on all sorts of subjects for all sorts of reasons other than objective truth. Essentially, it’s mass consumerism pushed to it’s inevitable extreme: we’ve gone from mass-marketing desirable physical objects to mass-marketing desireable subjective opinions. And in both cases, it’s the convenience that really sells the product.
