Letter to the editor: Climate change, effects are clear, proven
Kudos to Al Duerig’s response (“Wild claims about climate change, Trump, reparations”) to Rudy Gagliardi’s letter (“Trump will get my vote”) on Trump and climate change. When I read Gagliardi’s letter, I thought that maybe it was Rudy Giuliani using an alias. Giuliani, one of the heroes of 9/11 and now a ferocious supporter of President Trump, has become what the colonials once deemed “turncoat.”
To deny climate change and the effects of global warming, one is either illiterate or like Trump — i.e., refusing to recognize something receiving more public attention than himself.
Scientists worldwide have shown — proved — that global warming has dramatically reduced the size and depth of ice at both polar caps. They’ve proved that this change is affecting both land and sea creatures — for example, wider ranges for caribou, wider ranges for polar bears seeking their main food source of seals, and both orca and humpback whales descending further into Antarctic waters for food sources.
As for Trump doing more in two years than most accomplished in eight: a truly ridiculous statement. Trump has trumpeted that statement, but this administration is the 13th in my lifetime, and the only two that have accomplished less were Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
