Dear Minister Prentice:
Climate Change has come to dominate our international policy decisions lately. I respect your opinion that Global Warming is real even when The globe begins cooling. Many Canadians share that opinion and you must represent them as well as you represent Canadians who do not believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming.
I only ask for a fair and unbiased exploration of the facts around general trends in average global temperature. Are the causes of Climate Change, up or down, really blamed on CO2? Can we really trust the gate keepers of the scientific community after the revelations of the Climategate scandal? I'm afraid that Climate science has been over politicized and abused to create a sense of urgency and impending doom. Skeptical scientists within the IPCC and climate science in general are muzzled or discredited if their expert opinions conflict with the status quo.
Important policy decisions should be based on the absolute truth. It is imperative that public money and encouragement be directed towards Scientists skeptical of Global Warming. The campaign to discredit skeptics who had industry funding or experience highlights the need for an unbiased approach to the study of the earths climate. Only public funds can be considered unbiased. The Canadian Government should support Climate Change Skeptics monetarily and with any other means they can provide.
Without fair and objective research into AGW theory we cannot make correct decisions. Please support skeptical scientists in their efforts. They do not take the easy road to fame and glory by making rash announcements and fixing data like other Scientists. They battle on seeking truth in the face of alarmist activism while abandoned by industry and government.
Skeptics will only help us all be sure that our investments in the future are smart and worth the high costs. I can only hope that the truth is sufficient motivation for equal investigation into causes of trends in global average temperature. With your considerable influence we can rest assured that all sides have been impartially heard before committing to the drastic measures called for by your opponents. I know you want to do the right thing, and I'm sure you'll do it right.
