Person on twitter: false statement about climate

Me: please use this resource to update your understanding

Person: another false statement that was addressed by the above resource

Me: is there a reason you were unable to have the courtesy to use the resource?

[infinite loop]
This is actually a v effective test on social media to determine whether someone is dismissive: if they're categorically unable to watch (often, just click on) a video or read an article or process a resource they believe might contain facts that pose a threat to their identity.
The most important takeaway from the figure above, though, is the fact that over 90% of us are NOT dismissive. So, spend your energy wisely on that 91% - let the 9% spread their conspiracy theories throughout their bubble while the rest of us work together to change the world 😎
