A true mark of real stupidity is the inability to recognise it. Most dim-witted people know they are dim-witted and simply accept it. Only a complete imbecile is so dumb that he thinks he is bright.

At the end of the day, IQ doesn't talk, money talks. And those with high IQs serve those with low IQs but have plenty of money. Do you see scientists, chess players, researchers get rich? Who do you see on the news everyday being super rich?

 

That's how it goes I'm afraid ... school drop out owning many properties, university grad working for him/her can't afford to pay rent.

More specifically the Dunning-Kruger Effect:

 

"In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias, wherein persons of low ability suffer from illusory superiority when they mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is. The cognitive bias of illusory superiority derives from the metacognitive inability of low-ability persons to recognize their own ineptitude. Without the self-awareness of metacognition, low-ability people cannot objectively evaluate their actual competence or incompetence."

 

"As described by David Dunning and Justin Kruger, the cognitive bias of illusory superiority results from an internal illusion in people of low ability and from an external misperception in people of high ability; that is, "the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others." Hence, the corollary to the Dunning–Kruger effect indicates that persons of high-ability tend to underestimate their relative competence, and erroneously presume that tasks that are easy for them to perform also are easy for other people to perform."

I wonder if Trump is actually capable of understanding those paragraphs. I wonder if he is even capable of reading them.

So, is the membership in the Paris accord something that the President can decide unilaterally?

 

 

I don't know about that, but what about other polluters like China, Russia, India, Indonesia, etc [purely guessing from pics of poor air quality, don't quote me!] - are they in this? Otherwise what's the point?

Christ, he sounds like a five year old kid in the school sand pit crowing about how great his sand castle is.

 

Problem is this bratty school kid has a tonne of nukes at his disposal.

I agree. Im passionate about global warming. And global cooling, although thats not fashionable to discuss. Many many countries subscribe to global warming and signed the Paris Accord. But they don't act. NZ included. China, US etc agreed but actually, we would prefer to use our coal now, then when that runs out, we will jump in. NZ has 80% renewable resources. But it will take to 2050 to get to 100%. Rubbish.

 

Its a bit of a Claytons Accord. Buts its an accord. Maybe, this might take the US to task, and also kick start the globe to act. I know some countries have acted very well, and kudos to them, but to many, we will, its about the money.

What global cooling?

 

Why do you think that something for which there's no evidence should be "fashionable"
