The May 13 letter to the editor, “Don’t use lawyer to sell science,” summarizes the tone of last week’s global warming debate. I repeatedly presented scientific evidence, quoting verbatim from multiple science publications and scientific studies, supporting the reality that global warming is not a crisis. Unable to present any hard evidence to support their assertions that global warming is a crisis, the other side could do no better than lower itself to ad hominem attacks.
For the benefit of those who were unable to attend the debate on a topic of such fervent interest, I invite the Express-Times to publish a transcript of the debate, which was videotaped by Assemblyman Doherty’s staff. Let the readers judge for themselves what the science says!
