Letter: Climate change misinformation

Letter-writer says credible climate scientists say climate change has been predominantly man caused

To the editor:

There is much misinformation in Robert Wilson’s Dec 8 Letter to the Editor. Good sources of information for the issues Robert raises include the US Academy of Sciences, the Royal Society [London, UK], the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and many more. When you add it all up the vast majority [97% or more] of credible climate scientists have concluded recent climate change has been predominantly man caused. Robert’s other issues of temperature rebound, carbon dioxide as a potent greenhouse gas, other causes of climate change, weather versus climate etc. are also thoroughly addressed by these credible groups.

As for carbon pricing and the alleged carbon tax failure, see this site for some facts and a clear explanation of a similar pricing system https://canada.citizensclimatelobby.org/carbon-fee-and-dividend/ . The fee and dividend approach is the most economically efficient, transparent and enforceable mechanism to transition to a low carbon economy and can help families and individuals afford the energy they need during the transition to a clean energy economy.,
