It’s water you dumb asses.
This happens every day to varying degrees. We are asked to support something that has no basis in logical or reality.
For example are you an environmentalist who would like to see more solar energy? If yes, then when those same people come up to you and ask to you save energy, they should be your enemy. Solar energy will not grow unless there is a demand for it, it’s basic economics.
And the people who say don’t eat beef because cow farts are destroying the environment? If their calculations were true, and cows produced that much methane there would be cattle barns blowing up all across America (do the math, you’ll get it).
And when a politician gives something away “for free” do you think you are not paying for it?
But this is funny, it shows how we are swayed by emotions, not facts.
