Time to accept reality of climate change
Cal Thomas in his Dec. 30 column complains that “belief in ‘climate change’ has become a litmus test” for members of the Biden team. Climate change is not something to believe in; it’s reality — it’s melting glaciers, rising sea levels and hitting us on our heads with its sheer obviousness. Does Thomas want Cabinet representation for flat-earthers? Gravity-denialists?
Science isn’t a bunch of things to believe; it’s a means of assessing evidence; it changes to accommodate new evidence and more persuasive explanations. Its evidence-based approach is our best shot at giving our grandchildren a world where our species can survive.
Get real, Cal.
