All through history, ideology has fought scientific ideas that conflict with the supposed truth, which has been proven wrong. Our children and grandchildren will feel the effects of our stupidity if we don’t try to take some action now. Listening to the experts would be a good start.

Lawyers fight hunger through ‘Food Frenzy’
I read with interest the article “Programs ensure kids in need get fed over summer” (ajc.com, July 5).
I was disappointed, however, in the failure of the writers to mention the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy, a friendly competition among Georgia lawyers to collect food for Georgia’s hungry and food insecure. The Georgia Legal Food Frenzy is an initiative led by Attorney General Sam Olens and the State Bar of Georgia’s Young Lawyers Division. As president of the State Bar of Georgia, I had the honor of participating in this incredible effort, in which 249 law firms and other entities in the legal profession raised and contributed 842,317 pounds of food to the state’s regional food banks.
The state owes a debt of gratitude to Attorney General Sam Olens for his leadership in this crucial effort to feed Georgia’s children. I am proud of all Georgia lawyers for the amazing success of the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy.

Doctors, hospitals plot to profit off patients
Regarding “Hospitals buy out, cash in” (News, July 7), I’ll believe that a change is positive for patients the day doctors and hospitals conspire to cut a deal that actually costs them profits.
Until then, those words are merely a bedtime story they tell themselves to sleep well while the rest of us are tossing and turning, trying to figure out how to pay our ballooning medical bills.
