Ignorance isn't bliss. In fact, it can be incredibly dangerous.
There's no shame in not knowing something, as long as there is a willingness to learn. But we do need to stop those who are unwilling to learn and will use their ignorance to compromise the well-being of others. We need to stop electing them, stop sharing their nonsense, and stop giving them a platform.
We now have countless politicians who are making policies about science, health, and the environment even though they don't have any training in the area. They aren't even listening to those who do. We cannot properly address the challenges of climate change when so many politicians still doubt it exists, despite the overwhelming amount of scientific evidence that shows it does.
