Full Text

Dear editor, Re: It's too late to avoid damage to our planet. Is climate change happening? Of course. No debate required since the planet's climate has changed dramatically in the past and will continue to change. The real debate is whether human activity is a factor in this naturally occurring cycle. Conveniently calling this debate closed due to a scientific "consensus" is not truthful. Developing economic policies under this falsehood, based on a wealth distribution scheme designed by the United Nations, is political gamesmanship. Be careful what the media tells us we care about most. This is a politically-charged issue that a year ago was not even on the radar during the federal election. Unfortunately, as with all politically-motivated debates, the climate change indoctrination involves labeling those with a dissenting view to carbon dioxide being the root cause as crazy, trouble-making, oil-loving zealots. This argument is akin to calling a person who disagrees with same-sex marriage a homophobe. Clearly humans cannot stop or reverse climate change. What we can do is recognize opportunities and create benefits from adapting to climate change. Gary Cannon, Georgetown
