Purely scientific context needed

08/21/2008

To the Editor:

For Olin Potter and all who read his My View article in this week's Valley Reporter:

Please take some time and Google "Greenhouse Effect." Read what scientists, physicists, astrophysicists, the US EPA and others teach us about the natural mechanisms at work in keeping our planet habitable. Learn what a "tipping point" is and what it takes to reach that point of no return.

The basics are fairly simple to understand and, once comprehended, make arguments like those presented in My View blatant, misleading "junk science."  

Is there a real scientist in The Valley who will write an article that puts our situation into a context that is purely scientific and not fraught with the political fear mongering apparent this week?
