Vail Daily letter: Quit politicizing climate change
Climate change is being discussed with many opinions for and against. Everyone believes and sees that our weather patterns are changing, the likes of which have not been seen before. We also know that the Earth’s atmosphere has experienced climate change for centuries. Man’s emissions into the atmosphere and the climate changes that are occurring need to be quantified on a scientific level, not on a political level.
At this moment, no one knows if man’s influence is significant or miniscule. There is weather data that is being presented that is political, not scientific, to advance the case of climate change by politically correct scientists, as in the recent case with the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration.
NOAA scientists did not preserve their actual data and measurements. This is required in authentic scientific research so their peers can verify the test measurements and results. This is “fake science.”
We, the people, need and deserve the true scientific facts from our government scientists. We read where some scientists who have presented their findings are harassed, tarred and feathered by their contemporaries. Some atmospheric scientists have lost their jobs because of the abuse they have received from the left.
We need to get over it. It is time to come together and do what is best for our country, not our political party. Why can’t scientists meet and discuss the scientific facts to better understand our world problem and leave their politics at home?
The Trump Administration is working and experimenting with capturing Earth’s emissions and transforming these particles into home cleaning compounds. What are you doing for climate change?
We, the people, need to help the government to do something for the good of the country, rather than organize, train, pay protestors and create ugly posters to walk the streets of Washington, D.C., carrying disrespectful signs of our elected officials. The president and most of his cabinet officials do not need the jobs working in this administration. They believe in this country and are willing to sacrifice their time and knowledge to make America great again, without pay for their time, talent and sacrifice.
