I’m annoyed with the National Post.
Yesterday they printed an opinion piece by Lorne Gunter, who said the 23 members of an oil-funded lobby of climate change deniers were comparable to the 3500 vetted and uncompensated scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
I wrote a letter to the editor. I pointed out that, if anything the IPCC has been more reasonably criticized for being too conservative, and explained why.
Today there are 3 letters printed, all of them saying that Lorne Gunter understated the case and that there is no evidence of global warming. I cannot believe that is representative even of the National Post’s readers. There is clearly an editorial objective to undermine the case for climate change. I had not thought that the National Post was quite so irresponsible and myopic.
