    Cam was very brief. These were his exact words. There were no clear indications either way. Naturally I assumed he didn't try and that's why I was asking him. Can you guys just let Cam answer my question rather than keeping on interrogating me for asking him a simple question?

    I do not attempt to reason with unreasonable people.

    Itís not just about reasoning or logic with them, weíre humans, not Vulcans!

    Let them know what your wife know, if they refuse to believe you, then so be it. However, maybe your friendship could sway them! Who knows? Wonít know if you try.

    Why bother?
    Most people have their minds made up on these issues. And its not based on facts, so adding facts wont change it.
    Most likely all it will do is frustrate you - do why bother and add stress.
    Best to move on...

    If you wish to use the no free will argument..., then why politicians campaign? Why media attempt to sway popular opinion? Everyone has their mind set and unchangeable. Why are they attempting such useless tactics wasting so much money?

    Obviously I bothered, thatís why I add a lot of stress around here!

    Seriously, if you canít be bothered with a Ďfriendí, online or otherwise, you likely wonít be bothered by deplorable strangers.

    Important decisions shouldnít just be decided by votes without any discussions. Majority rule. We the majority wants this, why bother with the minority? They can just fuck off! Thatís less stressful in the end?

    Itís the built up of stress over time that gave us Trump!

    This is a good approach to take! It's a massive waste of your time and energy.

    To: Marsh and McLennan Insurance Brokers
    From: Me

    Subject: Environmental Risk
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I note with interest that your company has helped provide insurance coverage to volunteer firefighters and SES during the most recent Australian bush fire crisis in 2019/2020.

    These bush fires are widely regarded to have been exacerbated by the worsening climate emergency, brought about by increased carbon emissions due to the burning of fossil fuels.

    While we continue to destroy ancient natural habitats and burn fossil fuels, we will continue to place more firefighters and other emergency service personnel at risk. Alongside this comes further risk to everyday people, their property, and the environment.

    In light of this, will Marsh be reconsidering providing assistance to Adani while they put in motion their plan to build one of the largest coal mines in the southern hemisphere?

    As a business case, surely this is not sustainable. And neither would be the method of delivering energy to power business and industry in the future,

    Please have a second look at this before you go ahead.

    Yours sincerely,
    Mick Johnson
