Letter: A personal attack

As one of the millions of Canadians very concerned about climate change, I thought I should offer a rebuttal to Neil MacEwan’s latest screed against Greta Thunberg.
Instead of dealing with the facts, MacEwan pathetically relies on personal attacks against her. It’s a bit rich that he questions the 16-year-old Thunberg’s lack of ‘credentials.’ Thunberg herself has one clear message: unite behind the science. She has never claimed to be an expert, but wants all of us and particularly our leaders to heed the growing warnings of the scientific community. MacEwan further disparages Thunberg by attacking her ‘emotional problems’ including autism and OCD. I guess according to MacEwan if you have autism you aren’t worth listening to.
