Why politics on Lichess?

@bunyip ,please point out where I called for censorship. Meanwhile, stop forcing your point of view on a field that has nothing to do with chess

@Thresher_Maw Why should “protecting Lichess’ neutrality” be any concern of yours? You do not run this site, and those who do can use their resources for whatever they see fit.

Furthermore, “neutrality” is not an objectively real thing. If you are so bothered by the knowledge that the founder of this site thinks the planet remaining habitable for humans is a good thing, then you might just have to settle for playing chess on some second-rate site.

@chalebb I just wanted to ask you about part of one of your posts: 'Carbon emissions are rapidly declining from western countries,'. Do you have a reliable source for this that I could read through? Most of what I have read so far with regards to peer-reviewed research seems to have suggested the contrary. I don't ask to be confrontational, I'm just genuinely interested to see what credible sources you have that I could read through (perhaps in pm if deemed more suitable). Apologies for derailing the discussion somewhat. Thanks.

We don't argue about science or politics here, we simply want it out the site ASAP. How hard is that to grasp?

That do?@thresher_maw

@Chuck_Fess Neutrality, you know...
Tens of thousands of us playing from all around the globe, from different cultures?... The reason we can do that is that no one is pushing their world view.
That's neutrality. We come here to play. Please keep your world view (which is valuable, I never said anything for or against climate change) out of this site

@K0ld even wikipedia is a great source for this info: The 2nd chart down on the right side: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_carbon_dioxide_emissions

That's total country CO2 emissions; The population of China is increasing far faster than the US, and since the US CO2 emissions are decreasing, while those in China/Vietnam/Thailand are increasing, the difference in per-capita carbon emissions is even greater than shown.

There are many reputable sources in that wiki article; journal of atmospheric chemistry, epa.gov, ucsusa, etc.

You challenged me to produce evidence that you advocate censorship on this site.I provided it in the form of your own post.@thresher_maw

The best way to see if someone cares more about climate change or more about limiting personal freedoms is to see what they think about nuclear power. Don't see lichess advocating for nuclear power.
