I really appreciated Dr. Easterbrook's educated response to what I believe to be the irresponsible and baseless attacks leveled at him for his stance on global warming. Thankfully there are knowledgeable experts like him who put scientific research and facts before political correctness. One can only wish that were the case at the federal level where so many of our tax dollars are wasted on one green scheme after another. We all want to be good stewards of planet Earth. However, we need our actions to be based on good scientific research, not on the latest and greatest politically correct ideas. Keep it up Dr. Easterbrook, and thank you for having the courage to speak out for what you know to be true.
