Re: “Mail and Commentary, Jan. 6

I find it amusing that you think you know me because of where I stand on global warming. You assume that I continue to "blindly destroy the environment with no regrets," yet you do not know me in any way. This fact is quite obvious, because I recycle everything that I can, call people out for littering, and ride my bike when it's not below freezing. As you so aptly put it, "Way to presume...and be WRONG."

As for who benefits from global warming, I hope you will read this article by Donald Miller. It looks into an alternate, viable theory as to why the climate changes, as well as this tidbit on perhaps why so many scientists play along:

"Global warming is now a $5 billion industry, which benefits the government and its politicians and bureaucrats, environmental activists, the media, executives and shareholders of 'green' industries, and climate scientists. Businesses profit by gaming the regulatory and planned 'cap and trade' process rather than have to make money by producing things people want. The ("good news is no news") media shamelessly plays along and profits by frightening people. And we see how the movement’s most prominent activist, former Vice President Al Gore benefits. Climate scientists are awarded $1.7 billion a year in government grants to study climate change, but under the condition that these scientists continue to support the 'consensus' or lose their funding. Climate scientist Richard Lindzen, in Climate of Fear, writes : 'Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis.'"

Makes sense to me. Oh and I've seen some of your other posts on here, so let me make a friendly suggestion to you, karcreat2: If you really believe in what you're saying, don't belittle and insult people who have a different opinion. Convince them with facts, not hatred. You have neglected to give ANY facts, and have instead resorted to empty rhetoric. People who do this, in my experience, tend to feel threatened by what the other has to say.

Re: “Mail and Commentary, Jan. 6

Here's the citation. Kevin Trenberth, head of the Climate Analysis Section of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, is the one who wrote the quote I cited. Sorry I did not include that. Karcreat2 and Ericn1300, do you not see something wrong with this picture when the head of the NCAR can not find anything to worry about? I can tell you both are very closed-minded, but it wouldn't hurt you to take a look at this page: http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/09/glo…

From that webpage: "Another researcher, Shaopeng Huang at the University of Michigan, and two others published a 1997 analysis of 6000 borehole records yielding temperature profile data from each continent, dating back 20,000 years [5]. Analysis of that data clearly showed signs of the Medieval Warm Period followed by the Little Ice Age and confirmed that temperatures in the 12th Century were significantly warmer than today." This is my response to ericn1300's claim.

Yes, I believe the climate is changing. No, I don't believe it's because of humans. The earth is constantly going through climate cycles. It has since before man walked the earth.

Also, if you are going to discredit education at the College of Idaho because of one letter, karcreat2, I'm glad you are not associated with it. Many people at the school may disagree with my letter, but the college encourages students to think for themselves, not blindly follow what the media tells them.
