Cal Thomas’ junk pseudoscience in his Aug. 14 column was a blatant attempt to create doubt about the causes and perils of a rapidly warming planet.

To the editor:

Let’s be clear about what Cal Thomas was doing in his “climate crisis” column (Aug. 14 Mitchell Republic).

Just as the tobacco industry lulled the public’s perception of health dangers of tobacco over a period of many decades, so too are fossil fuel industries doing the same regarding carbon emissions. Cal Thomas’ junk pseudoscience in his Aug. 14 column was a blatant attempt to create doubt about the causes and perils of a rapidly warming planet.

No doubt he gets fed this garbage by pseudo-scientists. He then regurgitates it in a choppy newspaper column. Just as spokespersons were paid handsomely to propagate misleading information by the tobacco industry, so too is Cal Thomas is simply a fossil fuel spokesperson who is carrying water for billionaire organizations.

Unfortunately, too many Americans are blank receptacles for such dangerous nonsense.
