'Precipice' focues on coastal erosion on Louisiana through the story of the Pointe-au-Chien people, on the front lines of the fight against climate change.

Cal Thomas was once a legitimate Christian conservative columnist. Unfortunately, in his Dec. 17 piece, he panders to the public’s anxiety that big government is promoting false scientific information. Where are the facts, he cries.

Thomas apparently reads very little besides his own articles.

To wit, that same day, the lead article in the newspaper was about our local scientist reviewing the loss of Louisiana’s coastal land and marshes due rising water levels and salt water incursion. The article illustrates this factually.

It was well written and documented. But Thomas cares less about the real scientific facts than for his conspiratorial self-promotion.

Where are your facts, Cal Thomas?
