Letter: Fake news claim needs some backing

Letter-writer says it climate change is indeed fake news, let’s see the sources

To the editor:

Response to Mark Goddard letter: Climate Change is Fake

After reading Mr. Goddard’s letter on climate denial, I can appreciate his need to express a point of view.

It would be useful if Mr. Goddard would also provide some references that helped to generate that view. I tend to get hung up on evidence. I’m not too worried about the difference between 97 and 99 percent; but to claim that the overwhelming data is “fake” needs a bit more support than an angry claim.

How disappointing if all the science brought to the Paris talks was all fake. How disappointing if the efforts of more than 190 countries is delusional and based on fake information.

I think it only fair that Mr. Goddard share his sources so that we too may become enlightened.
