Climate scientists aren’t trying to rip us off

How can there be a “debate” on something that is not a debate? The Aug. 17, letter “Scientists just after grants,” suggest that a monetary gain is at the core of climate change believers. That saving the planet and mankind is throwing money down the drain. That spending billions on weapons of mass destruction is apparently OK.

She commits blasphemy by suggesting scientists are trying to rip her off. Why? Don’t you want to leave this planet in a better place for your kids and grandkids? These scientists are from all over the world, not just the U.S.

These are people who wants to do something good and not line their pockets. The names she mentioned, Bill Nye and especially Al Gore are right-wing whipping boys, who have spent more time studying the weather trends than anyone at Fox News or Breitbart propaganda. She apparently got her diploma at Donald J. Trump University and she received a less-than-stellar education on the wonders of nature, and just forecasting the weather does not qualify as scientific evident of “climate change.”
