Eliminate Money From the Climate-Change Equation

Letter to the editor:

The declaration that global warming and climate change are “settled science” is an admission of the fear by its proponents that continuing scientific study and open discussion by the many scientists opposed to that proposition will yet discredit the premise. All scientists are aware that science is never settled and is always open to change as new information arises, as in the case of Einstein’s work which disproved one of Sir Isaac Newton’s accepted theories.

It would be quite simple to find out if global warming and climate change are legitimate assertions or instead issues that are “man-made”: Just take the money out of the equation. Many scientists are receiving federal grant money to provide support for their questionable conclusions. In point of fact, a weather observatory in England actually falsified its results to reinforce warming fears. Then there is Al Gore, the guru of the movement who became a multi-millionaire selling “green credits” to corporations that were frightened by the public perception that they were polluters. Would someone who believed actually allow pollution in order to make a profit by selling a “green credit?” Gore did and he over-utilizes energy himself and claims he can do that because he buys green credits from himself. Really?

Just STOP ALL OF THE PAYMENTS ! No American taxpayer dollars going to foreign countries in payment for our supposed climatological sins. Mo more cash grants to scientists influenced by the allure of dollars to sway their conclusions. Finally, outlaw the sale of “green credits” to corporations, which in actuality encourages pollution. The probability is that you will never hear of global warming or climate change again. Just remove THE MONEY FROM THE EQUATION.

Over thousands of years the Earth’s climate has gone through innumerable changes, both before and after the appearance of human beings or modern technology. Watching the weather news each day one can see that most of the heat records were set in the 1940s and 1950s and some even earlier. In fact, measurable shifts in the Earth’s axis due to the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 and the 2011 Japan tsunami are believed to have had an affect on climatic weather.

According to Professor Richard Tol of the University of Sussex, the UN Intergovernmental Climate Change Committee’s (UNICCC) claim that 97 percent of scientists agree on man-made climate change was based on a poll of only 77 scientists. Hardly convincing when compared to a study by climatologist Dr. David Legates of the University of Delaware who reviewed studies showing that only 1 percent of 4,014 scientists who wrote abstracts on the subject concluded that there was any affect by humans on the climate.

Examination of Ice Age data shows that carbon dioxide levels were 10 times higher at that time than they are today, which bolsters the claim of some scientists who believe that warming is caused by water vapor and not by carbon dioxide at all.
So let’s take the corrupting influence of trillions of dollars off the table and observe as the flim-flam deflates and releases actual hot air.

Political Blinders

A few weeks back, I saw an advertisement for a session at a writer’s conference titled, “Living in an alt-right world.” 

“How can people still believe this nonsense?” I thought to myself. And then I made the mistake of allowing it to trigger me. I know for a fact that we are not now and never have been living in an alt-right world. The problem is that framing ...

Trump's Cowardice

I certainly have not been a supporter or a friend of President Donald J. Trump. But even though I publicly called him “a liar, a louse, a crook and a bum,” I have never accused him of being a coward, but now I see that Trump has backed down on his proposal to limit gun sales to people 21 years of age or older.

Wayne LaPierre, the leader of the National Rifle Association, objected ...

Ready for the Next Storm?

“Ladies and gentlemen, there is another storm in the forecast.” At this point, the weather people are as welcome as the grim reaper! Here in the Northeast, we are battle-weary from these major winter storms. Right now, I’d rather be talking about tulips and jelly beans, but it’s still winter and the best way to not lose our minds is to be prepared for the next ...

To Harrison, L'Chaim!

At long last, the smile of spring approaches, as an angry winter recedes into good riddance. Our spirit is ready to be re-charged. Damn the power outages, full speed ahead!

For my wife, Elyse, daughter, Elissa, and me, this otherwise exuberant time of year brings a confusion of mixed emotions. In 2003, on the opening day of spring, March 20, which happens to be my birthday, our 15-year-old son ...

A Half-Baked Column

“I think it’s time we retired this oven,” I said to my husband as I displayed a sheet of blackened sweet potato fries. “Even the dog won’t eat these.”

“Sure he will,” he said, tossing some fries on the floor. The dog immediately sucked them down.

“Not my point,” I said.

We had known that our oven was on its last burners for ...

When It's Not OK to Ask If Everything's OK

There is this thing that I do that annoys the heck out of my family. Well, to be honest, there are a lot of things I do that annoy the heck out of my family, but I am thinking of one thing in particular.

Whenever someone is in the bathroom for what I determine to be an abnormally long period of time, I stand outside the bathroom door and yell,

I'm All Pumped Up

This time last year, I struggled with my New Year’s resolution to go to the gym.

This year, I have made significant progress. I am going to the gym on a semi-regular basis. And by semi-regular, I mean, I go often enough that I actually remember where it’s located between visits.

The bad news, however, is that my workouts are just, how would you say it? Lame. Yes, they’re ...

Mental Health Needs to Be Addressed Before Gun Laws

March 21, 2018

To the editor:

In his March 8 column “Stop gun carnage,” Herb Geller identified the cause of deadly gun violence, but then he skipped right past it instead of exploring it further and  seeking solutions.

All of the mass killings have been perpetrated by (Geller’s term) MANIACS. The police were called to the home of Nikolas Cruz on 39 occasions, yet he was never ...

Winter Weather Cuts Through North Salem

Supervisor Warren Lucas voiced his frustration over the power outages several times over the weekend, unable to provide residents with adequate information.

On Saturday, Lucas drove ...
