I just want to let the two UCLA professors know, in case they've been sequestered in academia, that the "science" of climate change is so unsettled at this point that the average person trying to make up his mind on the topic should trust no one that claims to have all the answers ["Reader Rebuttal: Climate Change
," June 21].
I've done some reading on the topic, and according to one of the books I've read, man is only responsible for 0.3 percent of all the CO2 present in the atmosphere. Yeah, that's less than half of 1 percent. And I'm sure they've read the reports that over the last decade global temperatures have dropped, thus necessitating the change from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change" so as not to lose the ability to stoke the crisis mentality.
Here's another tidbit that I've found while researching the topic. It's a U.S. Senate Minority Report
about how more than 700 scientists that originally were on board with global warming have now jumped ship and rejected the man made disaster as bunk.
Now, I've lived in Southern California all my life, and I can testify to how much better the air quality is now than when I was a kid, and I agree that we need to make the best use of our resources. The problem I have is when people (not necessarily these professors) use a "sky is falling" mentality to control the general population and line their own pockets.
