Dear Gene,

You are correct, you don’t have to be a scientist to grasp Ian
Clark’s message. But to accept it as representing credible science, 
you would have to be either delirious or wantonly irresponsible. 

And by the way, a number of conscientious and principled scientists
on this list took issue with the accuracy of facts as presented by
the messengers on 60 Minutes.
