It was good to see the Daily Herald's full page opinion page in support of fact-based free press. I hope the Herald extends that support to climate change where the facts show it's real, it's us, it's serious and there are solutions.

If you have any doubt, I suggest you read or watch "Merchants of Doubt." Hundreds of studies were reviewed and 100 percent showed evidence of climate change. One of the best solutions is championed by the Citizens Climate Lobby.

"Most impressive is the work of the CCL … If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you could take than becoming an active member of this group." Dr. James Hansen, head of Goddard Institute for Space Studies, NASA.
