Reader in The Union: Global warming deniers need to be voted out

Editor’s note: The Union published this letter to the editor.

“The good thing about science is it’s true whether or not you believe in it.” — Niel deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist.

A major United Nation’s report by 91 scientists, from 40 countries, analyzing 6,000 scientific studies, was recently released stating nations have 12 years from today to drastically reduce greenhouse gases and entirely eliminate them by 2050.

The science is proven, the empirical data is irrefutable, evidence is the increasing intensity of the massive hurricanes, typhoons, firestorms, droughts, heat waves, floods etc. We have a global emergency!

We need change NOW! People who do not believe in man-made global warming must be voted out of office. Doug LaMalfa is in that group. Audrey Denny believes in science.

For the sake of our planet, our children and our grandchildren, please vote for Audrey Denny for Congress.

Glen Garrod

  1. The BBC not too long ago issued a policy statement saying that it would no longer give equal coverage to climate denial pronouncements because it was, in fact, a conspiracy theory that has been disproven by the vast consensus of scientists worldwide. Climate denial stories would now receive that same coverage as other conspiracy theories.

    The sad part is that a there still are people who believe denial theory. Of course, they also support Donald Trump so there you go.
