I would like to sincerely thank Philip R. La Scola for making my point about climate change for me while ostensibly attempting to disagree. In my original reply to his condescending response to a local teenager’s plea for sanity and action on climate change, I took on La Scola’s desire for equal time in schools to present the “opposing views” about the existence of human-created climate change by saying that not every issue deserves equal time. I argued that when we teach about slavery or Nazi Germany we do not give equal time to the proponents of these views because they are ignorant and debunked, just like the “opposing views” Mr. La Scola insists we study about climate change. In his latest letter to this newspaper, he says that both slavery and the actions of Nazi Germany "were immoral, unethical and all of society believes them to be heinous acts. There are no pros to debate on them.”

Exactly right.
