Letter: Wells’ article was based in science
To the editor:
In a Nov. 15 letter, Ted Leach calls Peter Wells a “climate change denier” and characterizes his Oct. 4 article as “trash.” Nice.
People like Mr. Leach who, I believe, have no scientific credentials or competence in heat transfer or thermodynamic science have to resort to name-calling and ridicule to try to make their case for supposed “anthropogenic global warming” because the truth is not on their side. The “denier” slur is particularly offensive because it is an attempt to draw a parallel with “Holocaust deniers.”
It is my understanding that Mr. Wells is a physicist and Mr. Leach is — ahem — a one-time politician and attorney-cum-climate-activist who has his hand out for donations for all those suckers that want to ease their consciences for their carbon footprint by donating to an organization he co-chairs.
I appreciate that this paper invited Mr. Wells to write his article and that Mr. Wells was considerate enough to your readers to take the time to do so.
