To the Editor:
Congratulations to Rick on an excellent column, “Carthago delenda est.”Agreed, that global warming is real, is driven by fossil fuel burning, and has passed beyond the point of requiring debate. Twenty years have passed. Today, the “controversies” regarding global warming linger only among the ignorant; climatology has analyzed the physics and the chemistry and issued a warning that will be heeded by those who value the lives of future Americans.
Denialists cannot be expected to choose silence. But in time, they will no longer be replaced by new denialists, pointless talk will end, and action will progress.
