When I say 'climate change belief' I mean it in it's religious sense, the sense that there is some pending catastrophe that we must sacrifice something to, normally our industry, our way of life. A hair shirt of self punishment we must put on, that kind of thing. I do not mean the basic science 'man makes CO2, CO2 is a GH gas, CO2 causes warming'. No one is arguing with that.

So, in the graph I have plotted various professions against IQ, and it is clear that the likes of Extinction Rebellion fall very neatly into the ellipse. They are predominantly middle class, well educated and intelligent, but on quite low incomes.

When you factor in that their solution to Climate Change is the destruction of capitalism (actually a natural force, like Darwinism: You might not like it, but you cant change it.), it is clear that much of their motivation is envy. Envy of their peers who took the same education as they had, but made money and a successful career out of it.

Whereas ER are composed of failed geneticists who take LSD, failed organic farmers, etc and are literally green with envy!

Notice too how close they are to the 'mentally ill' group.

Farmers have one of the highest suicide rates of any modern profession, why are they so low on the mental health scale?

I think it is because they are very macho, and dont talk about their problems.

It is in part due to the isolation of their work and the financial implications, they exist in a constant cycle of debt outside of their seasonal income. A bad year can lead to ruin.

I’d expect many bankers do. Some engineers can earn a lot too, it simply depends on their job and type of engineering. As with doctors it depends on their exact job, experience and exact field.

many of the high earners probably actually do believe in it, but would rather say they don’t to encourage others to feel like that as they don’t really care and would rather the environment be damaged than damage their financial status.

That is a very warped viewpoint.

For someone so cerain about climate change and can present all manner of evidence to back up his claims, I am surprised you have present IQ as something meaningful.

IQ is bobbins. Like any form of intelligence or personality test it can be trained for. And if a single person were to take such tests repeatedly, they get different outcomes and results suggesting that either their intelligence ebbs and flows or maybe there is no such thing as a quantifiable intelligence value. Either way, IQ isn't meaningful in your argument wharsoever. I'm suprised in you!

This entire graph is nothing but generalisations though. Where did you get this information from?

I made it myself. OK, thw wages arent exact, heck, I didnt even put a scale on the left, so it is more a qualitative than quantitative graph, but I think it shows a point.

It shows the point you want to make, because you're a moron.

Well, it might not be a perfect metric, but it is what we have.

Well, are not the earnings to career fairly accurate?

Is not the IQ to career also fairly accurate? I dont want to call farmers thick, but they certainly arent top shelf are they.

But it is true that support for climate change comes from that portion of the graph. Just look at who is prepared to prtotest about it, students, Extinction Rebellion, crusties, etc, all from that group.

When you make it up it's a complete figment of your imagination, has zero credibility and makes you look both stupid and pathetic.

Stop trolling. This is clearly an attempt to be offensive. Climate change is a fact, and something that must be addressed to prevent more misery for billions of people.

This might be the worst attempt at trying to look credible I have ever seen.

Literally no data whatsoever. "It is more of a qualitative graph than a quantitative graph".

The only way this could be worse is if you used free hand drawing in Paint.
