Letters to the Editor

Use good science to make a difference

In response to John Elsbree’s March 17 letter, I do not consider it unwarranted to criticize scientists who falsify data to support the outcome they are trying to promote — the situation that caused several top climatologists to resign. It is not true that every major scientific body that has studied climate change has arrived at the same conclusion. Climate change is actually very complicated and requires rational thought leading to reasonable solutions. Scientists also disagree about the level of risk from climate change.

The Washington Policy Center has produced a wealth of information on this subject, which I would suggest that Mr. Elsbree research.

It is silly to suggest that supporters of manmade global warming are driven by good and pure motives while those opposed are driven by greed. One need only look at Al Gore, whose utility bills continue to be 40 times the average, not to mention his private jet. He has gone from wealthy to super wealthy, buying and selling carbon offsets.

I completely agree that we should all be good stewards of this great land. That pursuit should be based on good science, not political alarmism. And it certainly should not ignore the scientific malfeasance that even the UN has admitted occurred.
