Letter: Global warming, and propagandaNumerous letters concern the topic “Is global warming real?” — all with the same themes and familiar attitudes. My concern is for all of them and their propaganda.

It would be as if I could see the future. Probably, it surely seems that way. Dated March 19, mailed the very next day, it appears this newspaper had my letter addressing anti-science for some time before Mr. Bogle’s letter. It is presumptuous to assume I was directing anything personal.
Numerous letters concern the topic “Is global warming real?” — all with the same themes and familiar attitudes. My concern is for all of them and their propaganda. For example, whether global warming exists is determined by science, not anecdote or how we feel about certain politicians. It’s up to those yet-to-be-named at any time “scientists.” (You mean, like Stephen Hawking?).
The Bible often speaks of another bad actor, “the Pharaoh.” Even though there were thousands and thousands of pharaohs, there are no pharaohs ever named at all. It’s like that in these letters as well. Nary appears a single name, no dates given, no studies cited, no funding bodies listed, not a single source is verified. Consequently, it’s all speculation.
As for science exposing today’s hoaxes, look at from where they are coming — the “tired light” theory and the rhetorical mousetrap called intelligent design, plus many others are all spawned by the same crowd. One can only accept this as reality by dismissing everything else.
