The report on Rep. Chris Stewart chairing the House environmental subcommittee ("Utah's Stewart leads climate change hearing," Tribune, April 26) offers unmistakable proof that our nation's commitment to combat climate change has ended up in the wrong hands of an inept leader.
The mounting scientific data on climate change offers a road map we must follow if future generations are to survive on unconscionable environmental degradation. The data may not offer indisputable proof, yet Stewart resists common-sense solutions to convincing scientific implications.
Stewart oddly maintains that the followers of science are ideologues. How backward is that? The ideologue is one who dismisses evidence in favor of his point of view. The ideologue insists that science is "fallible" to further his personal agenda.
