To the editor:
On the front page on Sept. 24, NASA scientist James Hansen accused fossil fuel companies of being guilty of "crimes against humanity and nature" due to carbon dioxide emissions causing global warming. There are a minority of scientists that are not in agreement, however, with solid reasons for their positions.
The reason is that northern permafrost is apparently melting from the bottom up, that the rapidly melting glaciers are melting from the bottom up, that the melting pole ice is disappearing faster than possible from just a minor temperature change in the atmosphere. Instead, apparently these meltings are caused by heat particles flowing from the center of Earth, possibly and disputably due to some causes stemming from changes in the solar system.
Unfortunately, the majority of related scientists are overlooking this contradictory heating source and thus establishing rigid postures, regarding logical global actions. There will be some embarrassed scientists and their defending politicians if emissions as the reason for global warming prove erroneous. Yes, we must reduce atmospheric pollution, but it only has a minor role in causing global warming.
