I’ve got a news flash for the residents of Seattle, Beijing, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Malibu, New England, the upper Midwest, Europe and much of the rest of the northern half of the planet.
That’s not near-historic record levels of ice and snow on your front yard. Oh no! According to Joe Bell, vaunted journalist and noted Chuck Cassity critic (“Odds and ends for the new year,” Jan. 1), it’s “selected facts.” That should make clean-up much easier. No sand, snow blowers or road graders are necessary. Just pretend it’s selective facts and it’s not really there.
Some, including Bell, may not know that more than 650 internationally known scientists, physicists and climatologists signed a statement into the 2008 Senate Minority Report, repudiating the theory of man-made global warming. They believe it’s a hoax, and they risked their livelihoods by saying so publicly. There’s many more who are reticent to state their true position on this issue. That’s because, as you’ve learned from Bell, to come out against global warming theory is the height of political incorrectness.
