The correct answer is kind of, technically no, but yes, there is. An ecumenical council- or subsequent pope- can rule that Pope Francis has deposed himself. It’s happened exactly once before that an ecumenical council ruled a pope not the pope: or more precisely, 2 popes not the pope. There’s also ...

You mean you’ve pinned everything even sort of relevant on it and declared that 2 degrees will be even worse. Well, use basic logic, yeah?

We have no idea what 2 degrees will actually do, you mean.

We'll have warmer summers and shorter winters? 2 degrees is actually quite substantial in the grand scheme of things - it increases, exponentially so, the likelihood of more prolonged and extreme heat wa...

Neither. That's kind of the whole point of calling them teenagers. They exist in the complicated and often distressing grey area between maturity and immaturity. I think there's an argument to be made for allowing teenagers past a certain age (let's say 16) to have more agency than children without...
