I've tried and I'll try again. I think he'd just discredit the "nasa" "government" website because they're "compromised" sources. Which doesn't help with looking at the actual data.

 

ah, ok. it's not easy for people to learn how to check information and assess information sources. it's a long, personal process. but it's important. just don't nod your head or lend credence if he espouses a post-truth attitude. bad actors push to achieve that attitude in people, that's how they nullify truthful reporting that is inconvenient to them. never lend credence to post-truth attitudes. it's possible to dig out an accurate understanding of reality, however limited. ideas can be understood as neither true nor false, but rather as probabilities, contingent on the supporting evidence. it's important for people to learn how to do this. the basic practice you can recommend is checking info against different sources. people get the import of this, and the practice leads to the individual getting a more detailed picture of the conflicting info out there, which then gives them the opportunity to apply themselves to reconciling the disparities, if they choose. the nudge you can give is just to jostle them out of any sedentary bubble.

i'd also show him this - it's not so much a climate crisis piece as it is a history of earth's climate. it doesn't require any great leaps to understand. the info is all easily digestible.

I am trying to wrap my head around how quickly it actually is all just falling apart. 

Natural feedback loops love to work in exponential fashion.

I think we're gonna see some wild shit in our lifetimes.

Next 100 years will be something.

yeah i honestly don't feel like things are going to "go back to normal". it's all just going to keep compounding - the environmental stuff, the political tension, the disintegration of cohesive social structure etc. It feels a bit disingenuous (perhaps wishful thinking) when i see news articles now going "face it folks, it's time to get back to the office". to me that just feels like big financial capital trying to squeeze the last bit of toothpaste out of the tube so they can secure their gated farming communities & armed bodyguard militias before shit really starts to fall apart. things aren't going back to normal imo. maybe we'll have a year or two of "kinda" normal. like being on an airplane with the engine stops but it hasn't gone into a nosedive yet, it's just coasting. Like being at a party where everyone can feel some sort of violent confrontation building, but it hasn't occured yet. everyone laughing a little too loud, being a little too jovial, trying desperately to disguise the nervous energy.

The whole humanity is addicted to fossil fuel and technological utopia and we're still in denial stage acting like we don't have a problem. 

But you know, humans have been through lots of various shit through out history, i think we'll figure it out, but we will probably have to hit a few serious walls before cause humans like to learn the hard way.
