Climate science coalition is funded by fossil fuel industry
To the Editor,
Re: Government must get its act together on climate change, Jan 8.
At this stage, with Australia nearly on fire, the U.S. grain harvest down 20 per cent due to severe drought, Hurricane Sandy’s landfall in New York, and with the 2000s the warmest decade on record with the 90s second-warmest, it is irresponsible and foolish for any person or organization in a position of influence, certainly including local papers, to do other than report on the realities of anthropogenic climate change.
Please cease printing columns by the International Climate Science Coalition and their ilk. And please note that the ICSC is primarily funded by the Heartland Institute which in its turn is almost wholly funded by the fossil fuel industry.
