The issue of global warming will never be solved, decided

To the editor:

This letter is in response to the global warming debate and letters from the Jan. 1 issue of the Sentry.

The statement is that 97 percent of the world’s scientists agree that climate change is caused by us humans and not the earth cooling and warming naturally on its own. In that survey, only 4 percent of the world’s scientists bothered to return their response to the survey. That 4 percent return disqualifies the validity of the survey, period. Maybe the 96 percent were afraid of political backlash for not agreeing with the government scientists and in turn losing future grants as some scientists have already experienced. The truth about the cause of climate change will not be known any time soon.
