Re: “Global warming critics find themselves under attack,” Letter, May 26.
Like so many people, Jim Swan appears to have a serious problem with believing the facts.
University professors have pointed out to me that it’s a case of being afraid of the truth.
It scares them so much, they come up with idiotic comments to deny it. The fact is they can’t handle the truth.
After visiting glaciers in Banff and Jasper National Parks in the early years of our marriage, we were absolutely stunned to see how much they had changed over 30 years when we visited them the last time.
An American cousin who grew up in Tornado Alley in the U.S. points out that while living there, they never saw more than one or two tornadoes in any one day.
Yet they have now seen up to 150 in one day a few years ago.
While the world faces these massive storms, causing billions of dollars in damage, along with the loss of people’s lives, we aren’t dumb enough to believe that climate change is just a hoax, as Swan does.
