The article ``A Sound Method for Forecasting Hurricanes,'' Dec. 12, was truly a breath of fresh air. It is good to see the tactics and motives of environmental groups like Greenpeace revealed, as the author puts it, as ``scare-mongering'' and ``propaganda.''
Since technology is probably the single most important reason for the rise in the standard of living over the last century, exposing the excesses of environmentalism is of vital importance to people around the world. Without more accurate reports like the author's, people may not realize their lower standards of living are the result of regulations based on junk science and laws ignoring human beings. Matthew B.
