Letter: Please trust climatologists



A recently published letter stated climate change is real. Of course, climate change is real. No, it’s not a myth that an extreme majority of climatologists believe climate change is real and caused solely by humans. We owe many improvements to our lives to scientists. The questioning of these experts is absurd. Imagine if other professionals were treated like this.

Denying the diagnosis of your doctor, even multiple doctors. Distrusting computer technicians on their assessment of the problems with your computer. Even today, during the COVID-19 pandemic, claiming the epidemiologists and virologists do not know what they are talking about would be ridiculous and extremely dangerous. Interestingly, climate change increases the spread of infectious diseases.

Climatologists are not out here to make money or trick you. They are here to objectively study climate change. And they say it is objectively real, dangerous and urgent. And we must trust them
