The Tribune is to be commended for running a story challenging Gov. Jerry Brown’s attempt to associate a wildfire with climate change (Oct. 20).
The story also included an accurate statement worth repeating: “It is easier to make a political case for change using immediate and local threats, rather than those on a global scale, especially given the subtleties of climate change research, which features probabilities subject to wide margins of error and contradictions by other findings.”
Though there is nothing subtle about wide margins of error and outright contradictions, the story was a refreshing change of pace from typical climate change propaganda that seeks to conceal all of its uncertainties from the public.
