Letter to the Editor: Response to letter addressing global warming statistic
To the editor:
As a decades-long student of environmental science and “the gentleman” referred to in an August 9, 2020 letter to the editor, I submit an observation that may further the interest of objective readers. Specifically, the August 9 letter writer, parroting the sock-puppet media, tells us that he believes “the 97 percent of scientists that say global warming is real,” a contrived warming statistic as phony as a seven dollar bill!
As demonstrated by analyses captured in numerous essays and in other technical reports too numerous to mention here, there is no valid basis for the laughable 97% statistic. In fact, these documents display in place of 97%, a statistically correct value of less than 1%!
Ninety-seven-percent blather is emblematic of mythical political science that, for decades, has hawked the delusion that human activity is causing an impending global catastrophe. Yet, as years go by, such myths keep being pushed into the future to allow governments to gain more and more control of the populace.
I suggest that the August 9 letter author remember that science is about proving not believing.
