Don’t believe simply because so many say it is so

Re: 11,000 scientists can’t be wrong when it comes to climate change, letter to the editor, Nov. 28

Maybe that headline should be re-phrased as "11,000 scientists can’t all be wrong when it comes to climate change."

I could easily jump aboard this ever-lengthening bandwagon but having worked with many scientists on many issues, I can easily state that among scientists there appears to be an overwhelming urgency to confirm the findings of other scientists -- and sometimes at the expense of objectivity.

Climate change appears to be real but do not be persuaded that it is simply because so many say it is so.
