Ironic example

Resident provides some thoughts on the issue of climate change

I find it ironic that Mr. Reid uses the example of those who used to believe the earth was flat.

That theory was all but debunked before Columbus set sail.

And I have to wonder, considering Mr. Reid’s disdain for science, if he’d been alive during the 15th century would he have been a champion of the flat earth theory?

I fail to understand the rationale behind global warming denial except as a smoke screen by those who have a vested interest in the continued expansion of the fossil fuel industry.

Furthermore, suppose we are into a natural warming cycle such as have occurred throughout history. Does that mean we should exacerbate it by continuing to pump out greenhouse gases at the present rate?
