On Sept. 9, The Forum published a long tedious letter by Austin Culp stating that global warming was a hoax. His rambling letter was based on the notion that the underlying evidence for global warming was weak, inconsistent and mostly made of lies that benefit Democrats. Of course, Culp is entitled to his opinion regardless of how conspiratorial it may seem.
I seriously doubt that Culp is an atmospheric scientist because if he were he might have a different opinion. The interested reader is advised to visit the NASA web site on climate change where the scientific evidence for warming of the climate is unequivocal.
In fact, there are nearly 200 worldwide scientific organizations that hold the position that climate change has been caused by human action. These organizations are not supportive of any particular political agenda, but only warn us about what is happening to our planet. Most certainly, they are not conspiring to enhance the Democratic Party.
Global warming is a serious issue, and as such, we must be guided by factual evidence, not by political nonsense.
