This is in response to Stephen Tygh’s letter criticizing Tom Osborne’s article, “When Ideology Trumps Facts”. The only “common sense” response to Michele Hall’s position on climate change is shock as Tom stated. With 97% of atmospheric scientists agreeing that global warming is a fact, there is little room for skepticism. Without action our children and grandchildren will experience the disastrous consequences of global warming. We already are seeing the effects. Recently the U.S. Pentagon released a long report on this issue and concluded that global warming is a serious threat to our national security. Does the Pentagon have an ulterior motive in taking this position?
Stephen Tygh, Michele Hall and all climate change deniers are in that same group of people who deny facts based purely on their political ideology. There is no other explanation. Einstein and Galileo would not be on the climate deniers side as Stephen alludes. Make no mistake, “the earth is round,” “the world was not created in seven days,” “evolution is a scientific fact,” and climate change is real.
P.S. By the way, Dennis McTighe is not a climate scientist.
