Letter: Concerning ‘settled science’

Regarding Charles Krauthammer’s recent column “The Myth of Settled Science,” I agree with him that the hypothesis of man-made global warming is certainly not “settled science” and is in my view a total fraud — see: http://www.naturalclimatechange.us.

However, when he states, “It mocks the very notion of settled science, which is nothing but a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate. As does the term “denier” — an echo of Holocaust denial, contemptibly suggesting the malevolent rejection of an established historical truth,” Krauthammer falls into the trap of his own argument by insisting that the “historical truth” of the “Holocaust” is settled science. Not so. Aren’t Holocaust-denial laws “crude attempts to silence critics and delegitimize debate?”
