Meteorologist rejects 'fear mongering clap-trap about human-caused global warming'
By Dr. Martin Hertzberg, a retired Navy meteorologist with a PhD in physical chemistry
As a scientist and life-long liberal Democrat, I find the constant regurgitation of the anecdotal, fear mongering clap-trap about human-caused global warming (the Levi, Borgerson article of 9/24/08) to be a disservice to science, to your readers, and to the quality of the political dialogue leading up to the election. The overwhelming weight of scientific evidence shows that the Gore-IPCC theory that human activity is causing global warming is false.
