Letter to the Editor: Reader: ‘What cancel culture?’
To the Editor:
I have to admit, I agree almost entirely with the response to my letter of July 26, 2020.
I agree that alternative energy is an important national issue, just as I agree with the 97 percent of scientists that say “global warming” is real, and a large part of it is caused by ourselves, by burning fossil fuels for energy.
I was also disappointed, as she was, by the editor’s decision to publish her letter, which was clearly an “ad hominem” attack upon me, which the writer says is “an indolent tactic of those having little technical familiarity with the subjects about which they write or speak.”
Perhaps she was unaware of the number of letters or their content written by the gentleman I was referring to, all of which are contrary to the opinions of the aforementioned scientists.
Finally, I agree that her letter was a “defective substitute for enlightened debate or meaningful civil discourse” and it “extends to much of what we see and read daily in the media.”
