Re: “Letters to the Editor

Matt Orr's contention that "the science is the science" simply isn't true. There is abundant evidence that climate models used by alarmists to promote the idea of anthropogenic climate change (it used to be global warming but the earth hasn't been warming for the last 20 years so they had to change it to climate change) are faulty and unreliable predictors. Hell, meteorologists can't even reliably predict the weather more than a few days out. What makes us think we can model a system as complex as climate with any degree of reliability? What Orr and other alarmists are selling is indeed a climate hoax.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Looks like a troll, smells like a troll... Sorry Paul, but if your profile photo is actually accurate, you're officially too old and privileged to be rambling on about the "climate hoax". Climate change is real and you're part of the problem.

Your punchline about meteorologists is so played out, and - by the way - a totally false premise for your entire point. Climate patterns and weather patterns operate on totally different scales as far as time, tracking and predictability goes. Weather is always less reliable.

Perhaps now's a good time to get in that Land Rover of yours and put on over to COCC for some basic coursework in the earth sciences. Good luck.

Re: “Best Bag Ban: The one that sticks

Kudos? Really?
Hey for a Lot of people those bags are Not just Single Use. They get used for trash can liners or litter box scooping.
The Kudos should go to the stores that stop wrapping palate loads with miles of plastic wrap, the stores that don't throw recyclable plastics into the garbage can every day.
Oh, that's right, grocery stores have NO recycling responsibilities! They can throw away as many single use plastics into our full landfills, it's the customers who should be punished!
I worked at one, I know first hand!
It's ridiculous that employees who bag groceries are not taught how to utilize the plastic bags appropriately. It's not the customers fault that every employee at the grocery store shoves any little thing into a bag, I have told employees many a Time that certain items didn't need to go into a bag. Not every customer speaks up though.
There is a much bigger problem that we are missing the focus of, customers of a grocery store should not have to foot the bill, or worry about if they have enough reusable bags to get their groceries home.
The focus should be on having all of these large corporations recycle their single-use Plastics and stop making so much waste in our landfills!
Why has that never been an issue!?!?!!

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Re Scott Webers climate change hoax article exerted (as opposed to excerpted) from Natural News:

LOL! The Natural News blog you referenced is effectively the poster child for pseudo-science based fake news. If you intended to be funny, that was hilarious. If not, yikes - here is some help:
