Is climate change really the existential crisis of our time? According to Cal Thomas, 1,609 scientists, including two Nobel Prize winners, publicly say it is not. They signed the World Climate Declaration (WCD) after examining existing data and computer simulations. VCD states that Earth’s climate has always varied, with natural cold and warm phases, and the Little Ice Age ended in 1850. So the current warming period should not come as a surprise.

VCD further notes that the world has warmed significantly less than predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), indicating that our understanding of climate change is far from complete. This emphasizes the importance of examining and testing theories, which is the essence of science. Steady science is a phrase that reflects a political rather than a scientific attitude. In contrast, theories such as relativity and quantum mechanics are constantly being questioned and tested for their accuracy and applicability.

So why is there such political hysteria about climate change? Chet Sullivan, author of this opinion piece, poses this question and invites readers to join the conversation by submitting their own letters to the editor or guest columns.
