In his letter of April 4, Professor Schmittner doesn't like my stating the inconvenient truth that climate change is not human-caused, saying that climate scientists like himself have known for a long time that global warming is human-caused. Well, bully for him. What he didn't say was that he has proof of human-caused climate change. Several of my friends who have Ph.D.s in hard science as I do, and I, have been reading the literature for the past 10 years looking for proof and have found none, nada, and no "consensus" either for that matter.
I am a Republican, as I stated before, but I am not "blinded by free-market ideology" as he claims. I am just not impressed by people claiming we are in a climate crisis without proof of anything that cannot be explained by random variation, which is the backbone of the scientific method.
If Professor Schmittner has proof, I would love to see it. Maybe it's in his book.
