Winston Smith announces:

I would vote an emphatic yes. Why?

Because this is a site dedicated to the discussion of miniature wargaming.

This is not like music or sports or books, all of which have some ties to what we do here.

This is a topic that by its very nature is political and agenda-driven.

Martin from Canada will post charts and graphs and what looks like telemetry from Sputnik I.

Then Terrement will post something even longer and more boring, featuring skeptics.

I have often said that the purpose of science is to prove your grant proposal. Ha ha. Big woop.

Nobody will ever learn anything about Climate Change on TMP. Because the posters on both sides, including me, just go for zingers. Our minds are made up. It's like watching a "debate" on [the news]. Nobody talks to the other. They talk past each other and nobody is convinced of anything.

All such discussion on TMP accomplishes is to fill the DH, and it has nothing to do with miniature wargaming.

So I propose the following:

  1. Anybody starting a thread on climate change, whether promoting or denying or skeptical, be given an immediate ten-day DH. That's anybody and everybody. I don't care if I favor or oppose. I don't care if you favor or oppose. I don't care if Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian favors or opposes. This applies to all.
  2. Anybody participating be given an immediate three-day DH.
  3. The topic is immediately nuked. Or locked so all can see their shame.

I am sick of this. My mind is made up and will not be changed. I am a skeptic and a cynical one at that. So too with all the others who start and chime in.

And there are plenty of other sites out there where this can be discussed. Why not go there?

And let's try to get back to playing with toy soldiers and arguing over bricoles.
