No time for climate skepticism

To the Editor;
Climate change skeptics like columnist Matthew Gagnon seem to believe bad things are not already happening because of climate change. They need to get out of their recliners and take a trip along the Maine coast.

From my kitchen window I have watched the rising ocean kill large, ancient trees which fall into the cove and slowly disintegrate with the tide until they are stuck in the mud of the sea bed.

The scientists and Gagnon’s “very angry teenagers” are right. Climate change is real. It is here. And we must act.
