This is in response to recent letters regarding global warming. Once again their letters trumpet global catastrophe but, do not give definitive proof.
Why not? Because they would rather champion a questionable carbon fee (oops tax!). How naive to think that if we send money to congress we will get a refund check every month. History shows that congress has a really bad habit of borrowing from such funds.
And speaking of history, it is a fact that global warming precedes CO2 buildup. So what that means is that the planet is warming up on its own, not as a result of anthropogenic CO2. Why is it warming? One just has to look a few miles under our feet to see a driving force. The earth’s core is a boiling mass of liquid rock.
This mass is hotter than the surface of the sun and is constantly coming to the surface in the form of volcanoes. This and the constant shifting of the continents (plate tectonics) affects global warming drastically more than mankind.
I think it is deplorable to ignore the other scientific disciplines that call into question this hoax. Where are the facts?
