Letter: What makes wine guy a climate expert?

Kelowna letter-writer asks what makes a local winery owner an expert on climate change

To the editor:

I was curious to find out which university Stephen Cipes (Winery owner branches off with book, Capital News, Dec. 22) attended which made him even remotely credible to write an article about the “so-called” climate change being pushed by big governments?

Is he a meteorologist, a biologist, a …..?

What are his credentials to be so conversant about the questionable carbon foot print of the intolerable first world nations, to which he refers to in such a sure and knowledgable fashion?

Wine is a science but not one of climate change.

So Stephen, fess up. You have never lied to us before.

Joy Brown, Kelowna
