Ellen Douglas submitted a letter to the editors
about Climate change. Ellen said that those that don't believe in it are the ill informed and loud minority. Funny, seems to me the "loud" is coming from global warming proponents. She goes on to say that 97 percent of scientists that study climate change are in consensus and 3 percent are not. And, many of the 3 percent have little or no training in climate related sciences. I wonder how she knows that? Ellen also said that the vast majority understands that climate change is real. How does she know that? And, if this is all true, why did Ellen feel so compelled to write the letter in the first place? Why isn't she satisfied knowing the vast majority agrees with her? Does she feel threatened? Why the condescending tone? Why is there such a feeling of urgency and desperation in her words?
Ellen went on to say that, "as for those who are confused about climate change, this is quite understandable because it's a complicated issue." Well, Ellen, good for you that you understand this complicated issue so well. Please be patient with the ill-informed as we struggle to reach your level of intellect.
Ellen also said that those who grew up in New England will tell you that the climate is very different now than it was when we were children. Really? It is? How so? Apparently, Ellen has personally polled everyone in New England. Ellen, you must be exhausted. Well I grew up in New Hampshire, and I haven't noticed any difference. Ellen offers no facts or resources, so I will. Go to the Web site, the Northeast Regional Climate Center, for a little information on this past winter. On the home page is the headline, "A Long Cold Winter." In the ensuing article it said several Northeast cities had averages that were in the 20 coldest on record. Hmmm, global warming?
