In his March 12 guest column, Melvyn L. Fein said liberals are in denial about global warming and other things. Actually, it is conservatives who are in denial over global warming and worse they are being irresponsible with possibly catastrophic consequences.

Either global warming is real or it is not. If we do what the liberals advocate and try to mitigate global warming and if global warming is real, we might save the planet. Remember, the vast majority of scientists say global warming is real.

However, if global warming is not real, if we do what the liberals advocate, we will produce a cleaner planet. If, on the other hand, we do nothing, which is what the conservatives advocate, and global warming is real, planet Earth may become uninhabitable.

Thus, the prudent thing is to do what the liberals advocate and try to mitigate global warming. It is the conservatives who are in denial with possibly catastrophic results.
