The way he takes hierarchies in nature and applies them to society is just so mind-numbingly stupid.

Peterson, like most very smart people, essentially has Dunning Kruger, because he is intellectually very smart in his defined area he cannot conceive he could be wrong about anything else.

Inequality/poverty are also just inherently difficult problems to solve - anywhere/everywhere. The 20M people living in Scandanavia have perhaps come the closest (that utopia being certainly overstated), but the other 99.75% of the world continues to struggle.
I think there is something about cold weather that makes People work better together. Like, we all get cold. When it’s -30 out, it takes a pretty savage person to say “only the people who can afford housing belong indoors”.

When you live somewhere it’s always nice, or at least warm enough that sleeping outside is no different than camping, it’s almost like “you can manage. You’re not freezing.”

Cold breeds cooperation.

Heat makes people lose their minds. I think because warm-weather places are always the temperature to have a good time. And good times eventually get stale, so you look for more and new novel ways to entertain yourselves. That’s how you get Florida.

When you’ve gotta spend half the year hunkered down because everything is dark and frozen, at least it’s a shared experience that you can all agree on, more
Or less. And from that, groups of you can figure out how to make things slightly less worse in your local areas. And from that, community springs.

Folks that are cancelled often get to go on the #1 most listend to podcast right?

Also, apparently, climate means everything, which means it means nothing.

Oxford dictionary defines it as the weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period. but you do you Jordan Peterson.

That can be applied to all opinions against his views as well. Which is what has gotten us to the division of opinion rather than discussion on practical solutions.

Climate Jordan Peterson says is incredibly dumb. Especially his thoughts on everything change.

The ice caps are melting. You can see it from photos.

They’re melting because there’s too much carbon in the atmosphere. This is preventing light from the sun from bouncing off the Earth and heading back into space, and it’s causing a “greenhouse effect”.

The ice caps, and by extension, the oceans, are what render the planet habitable. The ice caps reflect heat back into space. When they melt and add to the volume of the ocean, it allows the ocean to hold more heat. Which in turn melts more ice, which in turn lets the ocean hold more heat.

It’s not complicated (it is, but the fundamental mechanics are not). It’s not everything from an unending set of parameters and variables.

It’s barely junior high level science in the Calgary Catholic school district.

Disagree all you want about what to do about it, but don’t act like it’s not a friggen problem.

When I moved to Calgary 20 years ago, the ice on the outdoor rinks was pretty well permanent from mid-November on, and the mountains were snow covered year round.

Now, you’re lucky if you get a solid foundation of ice by Christmas. And the mountains spend every summer on fire.

I dunno. Seems like a problem.

Peterson praised Joe Rogan's stand up describing one of Joe's bits as "genius", that was the most offensive part of the four hour interview.

They can have each other.

He interviewed Montreal-native Valentine Thomas the other day and he flat out said to her "your country (Canada) is in revolt".

Now we have X millions of Americans and people around the world thinking our country is having a mutiny against our government when it reality it's the vast, vast minority.

I used to like Rogan for some of his casual banter years ago when he started his podcast. Now far too many people listen to everything he says as gospel and science.

This is the issue with media sources. People follow certain news sources and believe things like Canada is in revolt, Portland is being destroyed every night by protesters, etc. And you live in these places and its just the same small extremists doing their extreme things.
