Clouded 'science'

Re:
"Scientists grow cool to global warming theory," Barry Cooper, Opinion, June 29.

It's depressing that cranky old men like
Barry Cooper feel it necessary to spout off about matters that are far outside their area of expertise. But since he is a political "scientist," I guess he feels that he has the credentials. If he's wrong, he won't be around to apologize, nor will it matter.

Predictably, he cites fools to support his inflammatory opinions. With his dismissive: "And yet, science moves on," he champions geophysicist Nils-Axel Moerner in "flatly contradicting the IPCC predictions of an ice-free Arctic."

Moerner is another cranky old man, who, among other things, believes in the metaphysical art of
water dowsing, and who was elected "Deceiver of the Year" by Foreningen Vetenskap och Folkbildning in 1995 for "organizing university courses about dowsing." Trust the deceivers.
