Regarding the letter “All wrong on CO2” (May 31 and TribLIVE.com): It seems its writer, freelance science journalist David Appell of Salem, Ore., has not kept up on his reading.

NASA recently reported that all these greenhouse gases, especially CO2, actually protect the Earth from heating. In other words, the more greenhouse gases, the cooler the Earth; the less greenhouse gases, the warmer the Earth. So, what Appell calls “basic science” is not so basic after all. See naturalnews.com/040448_solar_radiation_global_warming_debunked.html .

It seems like scientists remain unsure of what is actually happening, but it seems rather sure that greenhouse gases, including CO2, are not totally being created by humans and even if they are, the result is protection of the Earth's surface from solar flares, rather than heating.
