I am aghast at the letter from Pete Hill and his counter-theory on climate change. The best teacher I had in college taught me that a private opinion has no relevance on things not questionable.
This climate change began with the Industrial Revolution and the overuse of fossil fuels, which are finite and not usable for long-term life on earth. Eighty-three percent of the public and more of the scientists know this. This is not a climate change over hundreds of years, nor natural in any way. It’s difficult to explain in 250 words but I will try.
All the energy the earth has or will have was created in the Big Bang by an “uncaused cause” some call God. It can’t be lost or created, only modified. Albert Einstein explained this in his formula E=Mc2. (Look it up.)
Nikola Tesla, the inventor of alternating current, warned us of using fossil fuel. It’s dirty and unreliable and dangerous. When used it creates carbon dioxide, which rises in the atmosphere and blocks the sun. (It does not help that we have cut down rain forests that produce oxygen.)
Never miss a local story.
Combine loss of oxygen and increase in Co2 in the atmosphere and you have the perfect formula for less ice, more rain, which leaves us flooded, and threatened with tornadoes, hurricanes and typhoons while some areas are drought -stricken.
It took millions of years to create the climate we had but only about 100 years to destroy it.
