'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Saturday, July 13, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Carbon dioxide is plant food while carbon monoxide is pollution. By lumping all carbon as bad, the media and President Obama have turned plant food into an enemy.

The science of climate change supposedly has arrived at consensus without any real debate, and anyone who questions plant food as a climate changer is a heretic.

Carbon dioxide is not our enemy. The media and the president are perpetuating a myth as powerfully wrong as the flat Earth theory. Limiting carbon with taxes and regulations will limit the pursuit of happiness.

Carbon dioxide is the staff of life on Earth. Why would anyone oppose plant food?

The Earth has had warmer periods than today, and carbon dioxide was many times higher when volcanoes fed the plant life that fed the dinosaurs. The American methane revolution is about to change everything about our world, and our president and media are tilting at windmills and blaming man-made plant food for every weather event.

Mother Nature makes 95 percent of the world's carbon dioxide. Freedom and prosperity revolve around abundant and cheap energy, not tax-happy central planners and their soft inquisition.
