If anything is a cult here it is denying the obvious.

That only 4% of Americans believe man-made climate change is their most important problem only goes to show the (perceived) severity of other issues, like their lack of trust in government - plus the effects of oil funded information campaigns.

The bridge was poorly designed, definitely. It is also used way heavier than envisioned, and due for replacement.

I drive a gasser not because I want to burn gas, but it was my best option at the time (2012). I use it with restraint, to say the least. Next car will be an EV. Am I allowed to have an opinion? Or is that reserved to those who don't care about the climate?
Last time I've flown for leisure was more than a decade ago. What really matters though is what the effect someone has in total, singling out one or two activities while ignoring the rest is a lowly approach.
It's called cherry picking.
Go back far enough ice free poles, rapid environmental changes, hundreds of feet of sea level change are normal.
Worried about global warming, ask a wolly mammoth, Saber tooth tiger, or dire wolf what real climate change looks like.
