Letter: Global warming

June 19, 2014 

The thinking of global warming alarmism is comparable to a crazy guy heading full steam ahead over a cliff while putting all his attention on trying to correct bad radio reception.

There are a number of threats many times more serious than an increase in the plant fertilizer - CO2.

Here are some.

(1) The threat of an asteroid. The question is not if, but when this will happen. In the past an asteroid wiped out about 90 percent of life on earth, and another hit could destroy the human race.

(2) A solar flare. Again, the question is not if, but when. In 1859 we were hit by one that knocked out telegraph systems all over America and Europe. We are totally unprepared for another event like this, which would create chaos and destruction.

(3) A magnetic pulse created by an atomic explosion in our atmosphere by a rogue nation would produce similar results.

(4) Nuclear missiles headed our way. This can be overcome by a missile defense envisioned by Reagan.

Future generations will look back on our judgment, and by comparison the flat-earth people of the Middle Ages will look pretty good.
