Scientific facts

Re "I want Falwell in my foxhole," Current, July 23

I am increasingly dismayed by the devaluation of scientific fact by its inclusion, by nonscientific commentators, in opinions about purely superstitious subjects. Zev Chafets derides "secular liberals" for "profoundly" believing in global warming. Then he writes about Armageddon as though the latter is more likely to occur.

There is no such thing as "liberal" science. Peer-reviewed scientific method has no political party, race or religious creed and no objective but truth. There is no disagreement among peer-reviewed scientific journals about the fact of global warming and its cause being human activity.
