“An intentional effort to eliminate debate” by the L.A. Times.
Paul Thornton, editor of the Los Angeles Times letters section, states flatly that he “won’t publish some letters from those skeptical of man’s role in our planet’s warming climate,” reports FoxNews.com. In Thornton’s eyes, those people are often wrong — and he doesn’t print obviously wrong statements.”
“Saying ‘there’s no sign humans have caused climate change’ is not stating an opinion, it’s asserting a factual inaccuracy,” writes Thornton.
“The LA Times should be ashamed of itself,” says William Happer, a physics professor at Princeton.
Happer is one of 38 climate scientists that wrote a widely discussed letter titled “No Need to Panic About Global Warming,” published in The Wall Street Journal in Jan. 2012.
Other papers took up the LA Times cause, arguing that climate skeptics are too often kooks best kept off the pages and out of sight.
“The religion of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) does not tolerate non-believers,” said Jan Breslow, head of the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism at The Rockefeller University in New York.
