Patriots inform themselves

In the letter, “Hoodwinked,” in the Oct. 16 paper, the author calling global warming a “myth” demonstrates gross ignorance.

You’re free to think that Al Gore was unqualified to win the Nobel Prize, but, for the sake of all that’s great about this country, stop with the politically bent hysterics. Fact: Virtually all of the best and objective scientific minds in the world say that the current global warming is due to human activity and is dangerous. What contrary information have you got? Fox News?! What nerve! If you want to be a patriot, then serve your country by informing yourself and resisting the urge to attack things you can’t be bothered to learn about.
