Remember when people learned that cigarettes cause cancer and sometimes fatal lung disease and smokers were still like, yeah, well, I like to smoke?

The world has more than 1,000 new coal plants that it’s planning to build, because, yeah, well, we like to burn coal.

From The Guardian:

The huge planned expansion comes despite warnings from politicians, scientists and campaigners [Ed. — and church leaders and social scientists and probably children and dogs and Muppets and the concept of “happiness”] that the planet’s fast-rising carbon emissions must peak within a few years if runaway climate change is to be avoided and that fossil fuel assets risk becoming worthless if international action on global warming moves forward.
