The Collins English Dictionary defines statesman () as a political leader whose wisdom, integrity, etc, win great respect. Curiously the publication StatesmanJournal.com, with the publication of a letter below accompanied by a John Cole cartoon shows no wisdom, no integrity etc and certainly didn't win this blogs respect with the falsities contained in the letter and cartoon.
Well, Roberta, I also am frustrated by the media's misrepresentation of climate change. I am also appalled by your misrepresentations of climate change.
You use natural disasters as "evidence" that climate change is catastrophic. Most scientists, including the IPCC, agreed that natural disasters are NOT caused by climate change.
You say: "I defend others’ opinions to deny climate change.." but Roberta, we don't deny climate change, we KNOW that climate has changed since time began. We also know that the late twentieth century warming has stopped and that there has been no global warming this century.
You say: "criticizing us without offering/promoting/supporting/comparing your and our beliefs" .....
Roberta, you must have had your eyes and ears closed and are not interested in learning the truth. The NIPCC report: Climate Change Reconsidered II (pdf) offers more science than the IPCC's AR5 and has references to peer-reviewed papers. Unlike the IPCC's AR5, the CCR-II has no papers from advocacy groups.
Moving on to John Cole's cheating cartoon. He tries to depict a weight of "evidence" against one man with snow on his roof.
Even Mr Cole must KNOW that this is wrong! ONE ROOF - John? Make that most of the Northern Hemisphere, make it the Middle East....etc. See these news reports. But there are the thousands of scientist who signed the petition project, there are thousands of papers that opposed the falsified global warming hoax (see also), there are the NIPCC's CCR-II reports.
Mr Cole, your cartoon was unbalanced.
His LH side should be joined by more truth:
