Global warming?

September 14, 2013

Your editorial Sept. 3 about the Great Lakes water level and its relevance to global warming was nothing more than right- wing jibberish....

You mean like the "propaganda" from the "data manipulation" over temperature readings from scientists to support their claim to receive more funding?

I also thought the editorial author's eagerness to to validate their point of view clouded their judgement when selecting data to support their opinion.

If the writer wants to point out errors of fact, that's one thing. But to say it's "right wing jibberish" is a bit rich given some of the quotes from climate alarmists.

The hypocrisy also includes people like Al Gore, whose yearly carbon footprint rivals that of entire countries. And these same countries were recently lectured by Obama that they can't have cars and air-conditioning (unless you're rich and can buy some credits from the Green police).

You want to pretend you can control the weather, fine, but don't try to force your Eco-Earth worship on me.

It's obvious that this writer is familiar with gibberish, since they appear to use only that in their writing.

And a side note: When one does not know how to spell "cited" it leaves us to wonder how educated the writer must be and how they could comprehend what they are saying.

"selecting data", do you mean the way the global warming, er I mean climate change supporters did when they claimed 97% of scientists say man made climate change is real?

I guess the fact that the Great Lakes are tied to the oceans via waterways (like the St Lawrence Seaway) is irrelevant.

Liberal selective information on display!

Ritty77, you nailed it. I'm sick of people like Al Gore yammering on about this when his home uses many, many times as much electricity and other resources as mine. But in his mind, that's OK, because he has money and he can buy carbon credits to offset his "footprint".

And before anyone gets their panties in a twist, yes, I conserve, recycle, I don't use gasoline needlessly just driving for no reason, keep my thermostat set low, mostly because I need to watch what I spend.

So, you Al Gores out there, put your money where your mouth is. Downsize your home, drive an electric car, don't fly, sit by one lone squiggly light bulb to read, charge your iPad with a solar panel, etc. Until then, butt out.

It is obvious the right wing doesn't like being scolded for their gibberish.

Niagra Falls continues to erode away so the water flows out of the Great Lakes easier.

The Niagra Falls power plants take more water from upstream where it is easier to drain the lakes

Chicago decided to put in the river that leads to the Mississippi and that is stealing more water from the Great Lakes.

And more municipalities and agriculture are using greater amounts of water from the lake.

Also it was announced that Mt. McKinley/Denali is getting lower so either the sea level is rising or maybe just maybe it could be that technology and the ability to measure heights above sea level is improving.

I think someone in Hughesville doesn't like the gas industry influx of people and traffic.

This is a very good and factual letter. Global warming is real, the CEO of Exxon said so. He also said we need to adapt.I am just waiting for my ocean front property in the Central PA mountains.

Rick424,

I hate to break the news to you. But you will be dead before that new property of yours becomes ocean front property. Have you thought about selling that mud hut and turning it into a log raft. Then you could join Kevin Costner in WaterWorld. :-)

"Your journalism majors need to stay away from the engineering sciences."-Kim Konyar

The letter writer might want to heed that advice also. While it is true that the Great Lakes are not feed by the Artic Ice cap, they do get much of their water from melting ice in Canada. If the ice fields of Canada were melting due to global warming, you would not expect the level of the lakes to drop. But the funniest thing in the letter is the assumption that sea level is the level of the sea at any given time. Sea level is a fixed altitude, so that a change in the level of the oceans will not affect the level of the Great Lakes or your local airport. That's the dumbest pseudo-scientific statement I've heard this week. So I guess we could say that this letter was just so much left wing jibberish. Since when has science become political? Since the government has decided to use it to manipulate the public. That's what global warming is all about.

Since climate change has become highly politicized, instead of science we get gibberish from both sides.

The same folks who once told us the evidence that tobacco use was harmful was inconclusive are them same folks who not long ago insisted the polls were skewed. They are the very same folks who ignore the overwhelming evidence that climate change is real.

I urge you to write letters to your unborn sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters explaining your opposition to taking action today to stop climate change. Go ahead, list out your reasons, let them know why you believe what you do.

Then, at some time in the future, they can read the letters and know who to blame for doing nothing.

Jerry, I have a better idea. Tell me about this overwhelming evidence. I've seen the evidence. It is not overwhelming and is largely fictional. You and those sheeple like you would wreck the world economy on made up evidence and baseless hysteria. If you really look into it, the science is not on your side. But go ahead, show me your evidence, and I'm not talking about news stories about consensus. That's not evidence.

Jerry, You are asking us to make changes that will kill the economy, yet you refuse to present your evidence. Instead you want us to buy into a consensus of scientist who are all paid for by the same government who will benefit from these changes. I see that you cannot justify yourself. You have no evidence. No one does, because there isn't any. There was a warming trend for about 15 years, but in the last 15 years is has been cooling again. NASA has new evidence that CO2 does not trap nearly as much heat as previously thought, but that news didn't make the main stream news because it doesn't support the accepted story. It's a scam and it's up to the side that want changes to prove that they are necessary. Again I ask, where is your overwhelming evidence.
