Letter to the Editor

Curable ignorance

San Luis ObispoJuly 11, 2013 

Will Powers in his July 8 letter on global warming equates folks who know their science with “treason” and “accessory to murder” because they have not lost their reasoning powers, as he seems to have lost his.

Believing carbon dioxide, “the gas of life,” is a pollutant and has anything to do with climate is little different from believing the Earth is flat or the moon is made of green cheese just because consensus tells you so (as it once did on the former).

No warming in 18 years and no factual scientific link between carbon dioxide and temperature means that the some of us who are being fooled all the time should be grateful that you can’t fool all the people all the time.

Check out http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/Other.html, look under “Global Climate Change” and get educated.

Ignorance is curable!
