If we had a system where we standardized mailbox sizes to some specification

Done, been that way all my life (I'm almost 40).

and then licensed out some NFC/smart card system to let postal workers/delivery companies open them, then we might be getting somewhere

You mean some sort of key ... Again, done, group boxes have had keys all my life.

but if you could simply buy the relevant thing at Home Depot

Home Depot sales mailboxes, all of which meet all sorts of standard requirements for US Postal Service deliveries.

You do realize that everything you've said has been around for, what, a century?

There are even standards for positioning of the mailbox, not just size.

I'm guessing you're not real observant and haven't noticed that all mailboxes are already the same size, basic shape and location.

I thought you'd link to the sun engulfing the earth. By the time the climate's on the path to being Venus-like, we'd be knocked back to the stone age or worse, slowing climate change to a pace evolution might be able to keep up with. I'm sure some extremophiles would hang on at the very least.

(I don't mean the people who question how to address the problem - that's still legitimately an open question - or the severity of the problem, I mean the people still in denial that there's a problem at all.)

Careful what you wish for - the next, and final stage in the evolution of climate denialism is for it to take a rather different, more difficult form:

Climate obstructionism.

You have a tendency to feel you are superior to most computers.
