Letter: Check reliable sources when researching climate change


Re: Richard Lodmell’s letter of June 5, in which he casts doubt on human-caused climate change (‘Check your facts’):

I invite the letter writer to look into more reliable sources such as realclimate.org, rather than the website of an anthropogenic climate change denier like Dr. Tim Ball.

He is a retired geography professor, not an expert on climate change.

I countered his claims many years ago in the Williams Lake Tribune after he was invited by the Cariboo Regional District to speak on climate change.

The letter writer should also check out climate scientist Dr. Katherine Hayhoe’s TED Talk, entitled The Most Important Thing You Can Do To Fight Climate Change: Talk About It.

I found her presentation most inspiring.

There also is an actual reading list attached to the TED Talk.
