You’re not a skeptic

CHARLES REEDER

Montoursville

The author of an Aug. 24 letter to the editor defined “normal” and put that into context about climate change.

He also emphasized that he is not a climate change denier but a skeptic.

I don’t think he is a skeptic but more of a cynic when it comes to the debate about the effects man has made in regard to climate change. I will attempt to explain.

In simple terms science deals primarily with skepticism. They probe and question a hypothesis searching for a higher understanding or what some would call the truth. A cynic believes the goal is to find fault and conclude that everything is wrong.

The writer thinks that the changes in the world’s climate falls within a normal swing. A true skeptic would say that it does not. He is not a true climate change skeptic but more of a cynic who finds fault with all of the findings.
