In your Aug. 26 issue, Tom Fletcher refers to the upcoming climate change conference in Paris as “the latest global climate doom festival,” an obvious slur on those concerned about this very serious problem.
In rebuttal I offer the following quote from David Suzuki, barely a day old.
“Those who argue that seven billion people pumping massive amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere aren’t having a serious negative impact are out to lunch.”
“Fortunately, most thinking people don’t buy the lies. People from all sectors and walks of life – religious, academic, business, political, activist, social justice and citizenry – are calling for an urgent response to the greatest threat humanity faces. From Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama to Islamic scholars and Hindu, Sikh and Jewish leaders; from Volvo, Ikea and Apple to the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and World Health Organization; from every legitimate scientific academy and institution to enlightened political leaders – all have warned about the serious nature of global warming and the urgent need to do something about it.” Not to mention Barack Obama’s recent pleas from Alaska. I guess it is hard to look back and realize how publicly mistaken you have been, eh Tom?
