Dear A.M. Costa Rica:
It seems to me that the Wednesday editorial by Jay Brodell is based on cherry picking the information we (the general population) are receiving from the science community. We easily accept 99.9 percent of the science including hard to understand issues like quantum mechanics because we know that the science is behind a lot of goodies we like to have around (plus the atomic bombs). It is harder to accept something that requires some sacrifices and a lifestyle change, but we all have to do it otherwise our descendants will think of us as monsters.
