One-Sided View - Illustration by Richard Thompson

I'm writing regarding the political article which appeared in Prism, Summer, 2004, "The Politics of Science."

This is clearly an article by someone who is attempting to use this magazine to promote political views without adequate scientific support. I must admit the illustration presented is somewhat humorous. I am surprised that Mr. Gore was not quoted as he supports your point of view. However, instead of just counting the numbers of people who believe in global warming there are many others who have an opposing view.

I believe that unless this magazine presents more than a one-sided view it should stick to engineering science.
