Letter to Editor: Rep. Green should represent us all

Letter to Editor: Scientists agree on climate change
My name is John King and last month on Earth Day/Science Day I held up a sign on Highway 71 in Park Rapids that said "Climate Change Denial is Science Denial." A reader of your newspaper wrote saying that among other things I was being extreme, insulting and unscientific in my advocacy...
