This is in response to Stephen Tygh’s letter entitled “Global Warming Skeptics Find Common Ground”
Thank you, Mr. Tygh, for providing additional information on your position. I apologize for categorizing you as a right-winger in denial of global warming. It’s just that most climate change deniers are “right wingers” who generally say climate change is a hoax (Oklahoma Senator James M. Inhofe, for example). Do you believe that the climate change is a natural occurrence caused by the sun or other natural causes? If so, please cite your evidence. It would also be useful to know the type of meta-analytic techniques that found an accuracy rate of only .3% of the 11,994 scientific research papers that reported human activity as the main cause of climate change. You mention an unnamed “paper” that supported your statements? We welcome the opportunity to review this paper. (Let’s hope the authors were adept at meta-analysis).
Your statement that, “Shocker, I believe carbon emissions may cause global warming, but only negligibly, and nothing to be worried about” is definitely shocking.
Do you have any reputable information to back up this statement? Just this month U.S. and China agreed on carbon reduction goals. Why? Could it be because of reported research as appears in the citation pasted below confirming the high (95%) confidence level of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that human activity is the primary cause of climate change?
Laguna Beach and the world await your secret information.
