The column "Where are we going with climate change?" (Feb. 21) could have been written by me 43 years ago. Only I would have been writing about the coming calamity of global cooling.
In 1970, I leafletted for the first Earth Day. I belonged to the Coalition for the Environment, Sierra Club, donated to Greenpeace, etc. I was a true believer. Never did I question that science could be promoting an agenda for those who would like to exercise control over human beings by promoting this green ruse and making this into a moral crusade. Nor did news magazines, such as Time and Newsweek, newspapers and all of the media question anything put out by the "experts." All in the media behaved as stenographers, as is happening today with global warming. Scientists who are not on board were ignored in the '70s and are ignored today. Or mocked.
Global cooling came and left and was replaced with global warming. With no explanation. Although I am sure an explanation for this could be concocted by someone clever enough with info that has been altered, massaged and jiggered.
I was a believer in 1970 but I am no longer a believer in what is being pushed because I believe science has become corrupt in support of a sham.
