A word of caution to publishers of the Daily Bee: The resident local global warming deniers are no doubt beefing-up their blinders after your Aug. 16, 2019, publication of “Scientists Confirm July Set New Global Heat Record.” Few (arguably too few) climate-related feature articles that would offend the sensibilities of the anti-warmers have appeared in the Bee. Yet, in this instance, you confronted them with the fact that last June and July were the hottest globally on record, over the past 140 years. How are they to maintain their incessant harangue against climate scientists in the face of such glaring evidence? (Stay tuned.) Why, next you might slip up and inform them that a record 12.5 billion tons of ice recently melted from Greenland in one day. Or that the arctic sea ice extent currently matches that of 2012, which was the lowest year on record.
By publishing so-called “alarmist” facts such as these, you run the risk that die-hard deniers will cancel their subscriptions. At the very least, you should include a disclaimer to warn them of an article that threatens to dislodge their deeply-buried heads from the sand. Give the page of the article so they can assiduously avoid it and continue to embrace the fantasy that global warming is a hoax. (As they say, ignorance is bliss.)
That way you could shield the doubters from the reality of climate change and ensure a steady stream of climate-science-bashing contributions to the Letters Section to entertain the readers
