Letter: Climate change believers and opposing point of view
May 06, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

In the April 22 edition of the Daily Journal, Jackie Speier’s op-ed, “Treat climate change like a security threat,” focuses on attempting to discredit the so-called “climate deniers.” Those who do not believe in climate change are dismissed as being absurd.

A well-known scientist who does not believe in climate change, S. Fred Singer, is professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and director of the Science and Environmental Policy Project. His specialty is atmospheric and space physics. In an American Thinker online article on Nov. 12, 2013, “IPCC’S bogus evidence for global warming,” he examines the evidence. In his conclusion he states, “In spite of much effort, the IPCC, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has never succeeded in demonstrating that climate change is significantly affected by human activities — and in particular, by the emission of greenhouse gases. Over the last 25 years, their supporting arguments have shifted drastically — and are shown to be worthless. It appears more than likely that climate change is controlled by variations in solar magnetic activity and by periodic changes in ocean circulation.”

Some who believe in climate change reject any evidence that desecrates their sacred cow. Some of them believe that methane gas emitted by cows is a threat to our planet. Perhaps climate change believers are contributing to the perceived problem because they are full of hot air.

Glad, but wondering why it took so long
Don't like it
Not sure
