Letter: What True Science Looks Like
To the Editor:
Thanks to Michael Hillinger, chairman of the Upper Valley chapter of the Sierra Club, for his letter in the Sept. 7 Forum replying to my letter about global warming; I’m glad I drew blood. As some may recall, my letter attacked bogus climate science by presenting some easily verifiable facts. Hillinger then proceeded to “refute” these facts by reiterating the same bogus claims I was complaining about. That might work for low-information members of the Sierra Club, but I’m afraid it doesn’t really constitute a refutation.
Anyway, I am fully aware of the radical political aims of the Sierra Club, aims that I do not share, so I won’t be attending its meetings. Even though I suspect that Hillinger is not all that interested in science, in the unlikely event that he may wish to learn about the real world, may I draw his attention to the very interesting website — wattsupwiththat.com. There he will learn what true science looks like when it doesn’t have a political agenda and has nothing to hide.
