Is it true to say we've screwed up on climate change when the human race contributes only 0.28% to global warming, which is part of a natural, cyclical process? I normally go along with the great global warming swindle only because I'd be very happy to see humans pollute their own nest just slightly...

You need four questions, but at least none of them will get you stabbed: Ask each one "will you stab me if I ask a tricky question?" <- see, NOT a tricky question. Whichever guard answers "no", ask them which door leads out. This also solves the problem of none of the obvious thr...
