Scott claims “all he asks” for is for advocates of global warming action to wait again for “evidence from both sides” (“Always question science,” Feb. 18 edition). The catch is that we have already listened to both sides, his side less because they keep on coughing up new false evidence delaying badly needed public policy, delaying urgent actions, yet again, as they have done since the ’70s.

There's total agreement that the climate is changing as it has been every 1,000 years since a 2 mil thick ice sheet melted over North America 10,000 years ago. Were still recovering from the Little Age that ended in the 1700’s after it starving hundreds of thousand to death due to insufficient CO2 in the air to grow food according to one of the founders of Green Peace. Thousands of scientists concur that man’s emissions are about 50% responsible for our current Modern Warming but not that we’re entering into a climate catastrophe. Green energy will replace fossil fuels in the next 30 year simply because they’ll be cheaper. Meanwhile we can enjoy a greener and wetter planet. More people die of colder than warmer weather. And if need be we can cool the planet safely and inexpensively with aerosols of ground up salt over teh ocean.

Another day, another letter from someone trying to convince us of this global warming thing but as usual, another letter which doesn’t explain what they, personally, are doing to save the Earth… Also, as usual, no mention of emissions from China, India, and other nations... BTW, I hear China’s coal power capacity last year was six times higher than the rest of the world combined. I believe China built an average of two coal plants per week. This year I'd expect the same, if not more coal plants. Good luck in convincing them to give up coal.


Well said as usual Terence. I find these climate people to be a very strange mix of energy. One one hand they have a palpable disdain for anybody in this country who disagrees with them - and are more than willing to take rights away from their own citizens - yet recoil in disgust at suggesting the behavior of other countries is a bigger problem and would nullify whatever "progress" their policies predicted. I read that about China's coal production....seems Biden is doing everything he can to make them the new superpower for the future...
