    Well, since it's been going on for 4.7 billion years, long before capitalism, I would tend to agree with that statement

    I'd give Bill Gates some credit for knowing how to run a major tech company. As to anything else - I would not see him as an expert on just about anything - just very rich.

    So are you saying the US Republicans in Congress who are denying climate change, and its causes, are all experts in climatology? What are THEIR credentials in this field?

    so far, Rubio is the only one who has said anything honest and credible about climate change that I've heard
