Letter to Editor: Unnecessary controversy

To the Editor:

Might be worth considering that in today’s America many are threatened by the idea of an educated populace, making this in itself a “controversial subject”?

An example is climate change. Science overwhelmingly tells us that climate change is real and that humans are primarily responsible. One may accept or not accept the conclusions of science, but this is not a matter of “believing or not believing” which falls into the realm of religious thought.

Let us not mix science and religion. This truly produces unnecessary controversy.
