    1. Hello Manfred! The only one who is deceived is you yourself. You yourself, but especially your children and grandchildren must suffer from the fact that you believe, despite all scientific confirmations, that we humans have nothing to do with global warming.

      And that's just so you don't have to change anything about yourself. Closing your eyes to problems has never helped.

      Many greetings
