climate change must be taken seriously, doctors as leaders of opinion should set an example

Cone snails produce a wide variety of powerful toxins: naturally occurring drugs with potentially enormous potential for use in medicine. As components of the coral reefs whose survival is threatened by global warming the potential use of these is being put at risk.
Just one example of the unknown and unpredictable effects of global warming.

The implication is that you can teach an old dog new tricks if the old dog is a willing participant (woof! woof!). Therefore, the idea that behavior and ways of being in adulthood are fixed is a bunch of bologna. So much for the “that’s just how I am” argument…
