JOHN McLeish has formed an opinion that climate change is benign and wonderful. (The Border Mail, April 9).
But while he can find any amount of evidence on the internet to support his opinion, don’t buy it.
If he had come to the conclusion that missing flight MH370 had been captured by aliens and he then searched the internet, he would find like-minded people who agree with him.
He might even find some low- level evidence to support this.
If he cares to review real evidence instead of opinion, and if he avoids cherry-picking the data to support what he wants to believe, he will see our planet and our civilisation are in dire trouble as a result of human-induced climate change.
Mr McLeish and his like-minded friends can sit back like happy little frogs in the pot brought to a slow boil and not jump out.
Or he can join the great number of people and try his hardest to find and support solutions to this dreadful predicament we now find ourselves in.
