Matt Sullivan's March 15 Guest Opinion "What can Pleasanton do about climate change?" illustrates exactly what's wrong with our current educational system. Ignorance and these groups think regurgitations are pathologically spread to the very susceptible minds of our young people.
There is not one shred of real scientific evidence supporting the claim that humans can alter the climate in any way, but instead is solely based on computer models always projecting 30-50 years into the future. None of the doomsday predictions of 30-plus years ago have ever come to pass. The word "science" has been hijacked by the media -- it's no longer the intelligent debate of ideas.
There has never been a time in history where there has been more opportunity and optimism for the futures of young people as there is today. Unfortunately, facts are often not effective in enlightening these young minds.
This more resembles a religion guilt-ed upon young people, disguised as "settled science." Who wouldn't be on board with "saving the planet?" No one wants to be labeled a "climate denier." The method of indoctrination is despicable, yet sadly, very effective.
The Earth has been here for an estimated 4.6 billion years, with the climate going through thousands of periods of change. The arrogance of people spreading the garbage that about 5% of the humans on the planet today -- Americans -- are going to cause the collapse of all life, is absolutely stunning.
Today's media incredibly damages young minds by irresponsibly spreading ignorance. Real reporting is rare, and facts are purposely omitted.
