Environmentalism’s Dishonesty

In your article, “Clinton launches greenhouse gas education drive” (7/25/97), you quote the alleged scientific expert Stephen Schneider’s claim that “the increasing frequency and magnitude of ” this year’s severe Midwest and San Joaquin Valley floods “could very well be the first signs” of global warming. Your readers might also be interested in what Mr. Schneider has to say to his fellow environmentalists on the subject of honesty: “We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we may have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest” (quoted in the book “Trashing the Planet” by Dixy Lee Ray).

Contrary to President Clinton’s claim that “the overwhelming percentage of scientists believe [global warming] to be fact today,” the overwhelming percentage of honest, ideologically unbiased scientists believe quite the opposite.
