The difference

The following paragraph was the lead from an article on page A-6 of Tuesday’s Sun-Gazette:

The head of the U.N. weather agency said Monday that recent extreme weather patterns are “consistent” with human-induced climate change, citing key events that wreaked havoc in Asia, Europe, the U.S. and Pacific region last year.

These paragraphs were on your “The readers write” page in the same edition:

Our schools and colleges don’t teach this actual history about our past and now tell us to beware of climate change that is cause by coal.

America is better now than then but our climate has not changed or global warming is not a real factor in our history.

Do not be scared by the extremist environmentalists.

These examples highlight the differences between liberals and conservatives.

Liberals consult such experts as climate scientists, listen to what they have to say and try to act accordingly. Conservatives don’t consult anyone, listen to each other and do what they think is right, despite there being no evidence that what they think is right is in fact correct.
