Our grandchildren enjoy building sets for kids at our house. We love Lincoln Logs, Legos, Tinker Toys and wooden toy blocks. We like to build high towers sometimes and then have fun knocking them down.
For years, scientists have been explaining that our proclivity to burn fossil fuels is causing temperatures to spike and weather to become more extreme, ice caps to melt and the tropics to overheat.
All along, an outspoken group of so-called climate-change deniers has countered the science, saying that climate change is a liberal invention with a political agenda. The debate became the subject of documentaries and countless articles. At times, the debate seemed to trump the actual issue.
Last month, a panel of the world's top scientists presented its latest review of the data on climate change. The analysis concluded with 95 percent certainty -- the gold standard in science -- that climate change is manmade.
And with that, as far as "The Los Angeles Times" is concerned, the debate is over. The Times is among mainstream media sources that quietly stopped giving a voice to climate-change deniers. There was no initial policy statement or announcement -- the letters editor simply stopped choosing to print letters from climate change deniers. This weekend, he mentioned the decision as an aside in an editor's note.
"Letters that have an untrue basis (for example, ones that say there's no sign humans have caused climate change) do not get printed," Paul Thornton wrote.
Climate-change deniers quickly took to their blogs to criticize the Times.
