Dr. Robert Davies (My View, Nov.16) would have us believe that every responsible scientist on Earth has the same alarmist view on global warming as he does. The Petition Project, a private initiative not funded by energy industries, has gathered over 19,000 signatures of scientists who do not subscribe to the doomsday prophecies of Al Gore and Davies.

Folks like Davies want to bully us into thinking that if we aren't Ph.Ds and 747 pilots, we cannot possibly grasp climate change. There are scores of well-written books and articles explaining these phenomena that are readily accessible.
