Facts are in global warming

Daily Item

---- — As The Daily Item no doubt intended, one could not miss your headline on April 23, "Expert: Facts not in on global warming." Because the facts are in on global warming, I took your bait and read the article.

The first thing I concluded was that this was an opinion piece and should have been on the opinion page. Second, the speaker who was quoted apparently is not an expert on global warming, as he himself pointed out in the article after giving his opinion. He said, "I don't know. I'm not a climate scientist. I'm just a weather forecaster. I'll leave it up to you..."

For those, you say, were "enthralled" by a meteorologist, just check the daily weather forecasts printed in this newspaper.
