The June 26 letter, "Scientific theories aren't truth, but educated opinions," seemed designed to deceive readers. It reminded me of other articles placed for the purpose of undermining climate science. It was deceitful for the letter to suggest science is an opinion. Gravity isn't an opinion. It isn't an opinion that humans must breathe air. The greenhouse effect isn't an opinion. All of these are conclusions supported with scientific evidence and reached via the scientific method.
A letter in the News Tribune was wrong to suggest that scientists are stifling debate on climate change (Reader's View: "Resist calls to smother climate debate," March 21). There actually is a healthy debate on this topic. What the scientific community is opposed to is people interjecting anti-science rhetoric into the discussion. I believe the International Climate Science Coalition is paid to place pro-fossil fuel and anti-science letters for public consumption.
