what i really need to do today is discuss things with climate change deniers
Well you're the one bringing up the so-called reasons for the fires and you're being disingenuous! Most of the fires, (if you read the news - unless of course it's "fake") states that they were caused by arson so that's hardly "oil-related". So you bring up stuff that is nonsense and then object when someone calls you on it. Great! Good stuff!
