11. I dont get it
I literally dont understand his decision-making process. So, since apparently professors of climatology believe in climate change that means that democrats are bad? What do any of the points he makes about people having an agenda have to do with your political beliefs? Is he saying that only democrats have beliefs and republicans dont? I dont understand how thinking everyone has an agenda has anything to with being a liberal or conservative. Am I missing something?
