Alarmists continue to deny reality

A response to Alex Atamanenko's letter to the editor published in the October 22, 2013 issue of the Trail Times

What I find most disturbing about Alex Atamanenko’s letter to the editor (“Columnist misrepresents climate change facts”, Trail Times, Oct. 22, 2013) is his unquestioning acceptance of the alarmist message while completely ignoring the 15-year lack of global warming.

Would it be unreasonable to expect a competent political leader to question the alarmist narrative not only when global warming stopped, but also when the title of the narrative changed from “global warming” to “climate change”?

Maybe our MP relies on David Suzuki for his climate science.

Suzuki’s appearance on Australian TV revealed that he doesn’t know much about climate even though he constantly rails against the use (by others) of hydrocarbon fuels.

This beneficiary of climate alarmism fully endorses the computer-generated myth of CO2-induced, runaway, global warming.

Not only was Suzuki unaware of the lack of global warming,  he was completely oblivious of the four agencies responsible for collecting and publishing global temperature data used by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Suzuki also repeated his belief that politicians who do not accept the climate alarmist message should be charged with criminal negligence.

Will Suzuki demand the same charges be levied against political leaders who have been negligent in determining the truth about climate change?

And the truth will prevail, especially since nature refuses to co-operate with the climate alarmists.
