C# - As a language, ignoring MS's platform-lockage API games, it seems to tick off the fewest.

The biggest problem with C# (and the Microsoft ecosystem in general) is the lack of documentation. There are definitely some interesting ideas, like entity framework, but figuring out details when things aren't working is a real pain because of the poor documentation.

Here's the real problem:
Every time someone proposes a solution to climate change, people don't want it. It's not just politicians. That was the fact that started the thread, and it still stands.

Sure, if 'do something' means turning off your lights when you leave the room, people favor it. When it comes to doubling the price of gas, people don't.

I'm using fairly standard criteria - said criteria being based your ability to provide verifiable proof of your assertions. What did you think? That mere rhetoric would convince us?

I don't think there's anything that will convince you. If someone provided proof, you would find a way to explain it away.

You're the guy who mischaracterized the statement "the west side highway will be underwater" to mean "the west side highway will only be underwater during tremendous storms."

If you are not a shill, then you're the kind of guy who will misunderstand anything to avoid changing his position. Because you deeply misunderstand that statement there.

Things equal to nothing else are equal to each other.
