Letter: Susan Brown’s views on global warming are nonsense
I am all for publishing reasoned opinions from varying viewpoints on this page, but Susan Brown’s recent column “The unsettled science of global warming” is not an opinion piece, it is just nonsense. She counts the uses of the work uncertainty in an (old) report on climate change...
