Why not debate sea ice instead of foiling

It was great to see everyone at VP today - congrats to those of foiled.

It was also fun chatting in the shade - albiet (sp?) not super fun compared to foiling.

The topic of discussion was, yes - climate change - sorry. Sorry for my crappy punctuation and sorry, not sorry, for worrying about this and taking it fo ' real.

And a book I read recently and recommend:

BTW - Blame William for having an "other category" for topics vs. "This site intended only for windsurfing mistral boards from the '70s."

I appreciate our community and being-with/debating-with friends!

You and I will be gone before it really hits the fan ... my concerns are around the world we imagine several generations down the road.

An excellent example of very common rhetorical tactic known as "whataboutism", that is, essentially a deflection.
