What’s the difference between a climate advocate and a climate denier?
Most “liberals”, “progressives” and Democrats are climate advocates.
Most “conservatives”, “libertarians” and Republicans are climate deniers.
If climate advocates believe that fossil fuels contribute to dangerous CO2 levels and hence climate catastrophe, why do they fly around in planes for the slightest reason? Why do they hold conferences that require colossal amounts of carbon emissions? It is understandable that their work may require flying but flying for vacations?

The Ringling Bros. circus is shutting down this May after 146 years. This circus would come to Brattleboro back in the day.
Owners says it is a combination of the times (we are easily distracted by other things), the cost of hauling an enormous show from town to town, and a lack of elephants. Elephants had been a part of the show until last year and there was a major drop-off in attendance after they left.
Final shows will be in Providence, RI, and Uniondale, NY later this spring. 500 employees will be looking for work.
(Note to former-circus folk, do consider coming up to Brattleboro. Our circus schoool is being built as I type and we could use more!)
Just thought of this as I was driving around the Roundabout this morning. One day in December when I was driving by, there were a few people in the center of the roundabout setting up what looked like big stars full of lights. But then they weren't there the next time I drove by. Does anyone know about this? Did some people set it up without permission or encounter a lack of electricity?
For perspective, I was involved in the past in the Putney Road Business Association, which became the North End Business Association, which has now been pretty much inactive due to lack of leadership and shortage of volunteers. We used to do the luminaria around the intersection in the 90s, and for a year or two we put lights on the (at the time very small) trees in the middle of the roundabout. We had an arrangement with either the town or the state for electricity.
