A Major False Narrative

To the editor: There has recently been a lot hand wringing over the widespread dissemination of false information. The worry is that it is massive in reach, very influential and well-orchestrated.

Such campaigns are said to serve evil purposes. This is not, however, a new phenomenon. We have already been subjected to just such activity for a long time, yet there has been no comparable objection.

So what is this false narrative? It is the claim that additional CO2 in the atmosphere is causing catastrophic climate change. Anyone who has seriously looked into the science behind that proposition will find it to be so weak as to constitute a joke. Those who do attempt to publicly blow the whistle, however, are subject to harassment, loss of job and worse.
