I suppose Rob Jenkins and the 3 percent of environmental scientists that share his skepticism about the human influence on global warming could be right (“I’m a global warming skeptic,” Oct. 22, 2C).

On the other hand, the other 97 percent — and I — who believe that man’s influence on temperature rises has created an existential problem could be right. The problem is that if the vast majority is correct but we take no remedial actions, the earth could be severely, maybe irreparably, harmed as early as our grandchildren’s generation.

Most of the rest of the world’s governments are implementing those actions; the U.S. should not be taking the risk that our present government’s position is wrong.
