It is not even clear what he meant -- not because of your reporting, but because based on what you have quoted, his thinking was confused. Everyone has opinions, but some are far more useful than others. It is most important for leaders to be clear and to have integrity; the others will follow.

I believe that a very large portion of the general public is just not believers of global warming. The other day, I was in a store. A man --- ok, maybe he wasn’t a typical person , but I think his thought wasn’t THAT far off from the norm -- loudly observed that it was raining like in a tropical rain forest (which seems to be occurring more and more in my parts). He then said something like there’s nothing he can do about the weather, nor about himself because that’s the way [he alluded to God] he was made. No one responded, so I really don’t know what the others were thinking. I like the others, said nothing, but was thinking: No, we CAN do something about the weather. I wonder how many people out there are like him, thinking nothing can be done.
