I will get these claims regarding climate change were exaggerated, did I? My comment was about what Andy wrote, not about climate change. You’re creating a strawman argument, which is a fallacy. Please try and stay on topic. Also, if you’re going to accuse anyone here of ultracrepidarianism, then you must accuse yourself of the same. Or do you claim to be a qualified expert on the topic of plastic pollution? This is an awful piece of journalism for a few reasons. A random argument on Facebook doesn’t constitute a row worthy of news coverage. The attendees have already raised loads of money via a crowd funder to replant by grass if necessary, the bristol council is going to assess.
