Re: Feb. 21 letter from Lynn Goldfarb, “Global warming scientific fact”
Ms. Goldfarb's claims that there is science behind climate change since she has two children who are climate scientists. She also stated that 10,000 plus so-called scientists also claimed that it is true. Is she aware that over 30,000 scientists signed a petition sent to the IPCC taking issue with their stance. Those that support climate change are making financial gains by claiming there is real science behind man caused climate change. I would ask her to read below. If she is open minded she will change her opinion.
CO2 or carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere is a trace gas. It represents less than 400 parts by volume or less than .04 percent of the Earth's atmosphere. Plant life could not exist without it. Humans breathe in oxygen and expel CO2.
Our current White House group is trying to enforce, by fiat, restrictive controls which are driving up the costs for all Americans. Even though Congress rejected Cap and Trade by a wide margin the EPA is trying to force unrealistic regulations on manufacturers.
Never miss a local story.
Present non scientific regulations are taking 22 billion dollars annually out of the Federal Budget. This increases the cost of living by $1400 for each American family. Current EPA demands if not rescinded will drive this cost up to $4000 per family.
Even though the mainstream press and our White house are preaching Climate Change as a man made disaster they have no science behind them. They only have some well funded agenda driven individuals, who if successful will wreck our fragile economy.
There are over 31000 climate scientists who have signed a petition expressing disapproval of the Federally published report on man caused climate change. The IPCC report coming out will state that current climate conditions are really bad. This report is based on flawed and biased information.
Consider the following:
• The ice at the North and South Poles are at normal or above levels. In fact the ice at the South Pole is at all time record depth.
• The ocean levels are not rising.
• Polar bear populations are not declining.
• Our Great Lake levels are in great shape.
The average world temperature has not risen in over 15 years and the change over 150 years is less than one degree. Check out the links listed below. If we as a nation don't educate ourselves to the fact we are going to do irreparable harm to our fragile economy.
We need to be good stewards of our world and eliminate all the pollution that is practical, but it must be based on common sense regulations that can be backed up by provable science. Remember most climate scientists know that what the IPCC is trying to push as a manmade disaster can't be backed by any scientific evidence.
