Letter to the editor: Wild claims about climate change, Trump, reparations
Rudy Gagliardi makes some pretty preposterous statements in his letter “Trump will get my vote.”
He says “I think global warming is something Al Gore came up with to become a millionaire.” Seems pretty arrogant to think that nature gives a damn what you think. Are you a climatologist? Obviously not. Neither is Trump, or the bloviators on Fox News. The majority of real scientists who study climate agree climate change is an imminent threat.
If you don’t believe the scientists, just look at the evidence. July was the hottest month on record. Ice is melting and sea level is rising. We are having more 100-year storms. Gagliardi must be willfully blind to ignore the obvious fact that the real money is being made in denying climate change, not inventing a hoax.
When he says Trump “has done more good for our country in two years than most presidents have done in eight,” I wonder what he is talking about. Was it the trillions of dollars of debt we incurred by his tax breaks for the rich? Was it that Trump has buddied up with our enemies and alienated our friends and allies? Or the 76 environmental laws overturned so the rich can get richer at the expense of our earth?
I think Gagliardi must have meant “reparations,” not “repatriations,” should be paid to living slaves; in any case, he knows perfectly well that there are no living slaves, at least in the sense he implies.
Do I infer from his third paragraph that he thinks Obama is a racist? Details, please.
