Mr. Bob Kushner, a response to your letter on "global warming" (Letter of the Week, July 20-26):
What has become a political tug of war to see what party will win, not caring what the real facts are, but unfortunately this largely discussed subject has become political and many facts have not been brought to our attention as concerned citizens.
Blaming "Scott" and the "Tea Party," and saying voters will get even with him come election time, is a biased political statement.
Many conservatives are also screaming at Al Gore and the Democrats, and complainers on both sides assume that they heard the real facts.
There are many articles by top scientists from MIT, scientific agencies, magazines and concerned weather agencies, including a recent video and article by John Coleman, weather expert and the founder of the Weather Channel elected "man of the year with AMS." He quit because he claimed that "politics had gotten in the way of science" and has proof that these claims are "bogus" and added "if these claims were real, he would devote his whole life to stopping the warming."
Recently, it was tabulated that 31,000 registered scientists agreed that global warming is a hoax. Perhaps Gov. Scott should also listen to them and to "all" other scientists and not just the ones that were chosen by Al Gore and the Democratic Party.
Perhaps a debate is in order that will bring out both facts and give citizens broader views that are not politically motivated.
You and I are not scientists, so we should not be throwing stones at each other until all the facts are in.
This letter is not meant to be argumentative, it is just a way to quit throwing blame because this is just too big of a issue for "nonscientists" drawing unfair conclusions.
