ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The editorial “Global-warming fraud harms science” (Opinion, Thursday) is balanced and makes for good reading - until the final sentence.

The editorial points out that the withholding of data not supportive of a developing theory is not only an act of dishonesty but also a violation of scientific principles. To follow that concept with the sentence, “Even most scientists can understand that is wrong,” is insulting to the vast majority of scientists who work assiduously to further knowledge in a wide variety of disciplines.

Unlike politicians, real scientists - by nature and training - follow the evidence. We need a few more real scientists in Congress; at least they would read the bills before voting on them.
