Climate change is real

Re "Skeptical of climate 'religion'" (Letters, March 12): In the early 1980's, my husband and I were writing to a missionary close to the arctic circle in an Inuit village.

They were becoming increasingly distressed because snowmobiles were falling through the ice in the dead of winter when the ice should have been thick enough to support their weight. At that time, climate change was only obvious to scientists who were looking at the rate of rise of CO2 in the atmosphere.

People at the beginning of the industrial revolution postulated that CO2 rise might become a problem. People need to inform themselves with facts. Two very readable texts backed by research are available: "Field Notes from a Catastrophe," and "The Sixth Extinction." Unless you are informed, you are not entitled to your facts, only to your opinion.

Try to explain to the Inuit why they have to move.
