The politics of science

I am delighted to read the article "Epitaph Written to Cold-Fusion Follies," July 10.But when are you going to write the epitaph to the global-warming and sea-level-rise follies? Although there is no conclusive evidence to support either global warming or a rise in the sea level, many scientists have used erroneous models and sensational media coverage to predict catastrophic scenarios. These scenarios have been used to threaten South Pacific island peoples and extort research funds from politicians. It is a conspiracy for a money grab. Brendan Holden, Suva, Fiji
