The Times has heard from a number of people who complain of two things: these Climate Change articles are going on and on, without any resolution; and, these articles should be published as Letters to the Editor, because they are just opinion pieces. I may agree with the first, and perhaps it’s time to call a halt to the discussion in this forum. Let me know what you think.
However, opinions are important, especially in this area where people are deeply concerned on both sides and have taken the trouble to research, think, and then write their conclusions for our common benefit. This is an important conversation which deserves serious consideration. Hence the space we have given to it. In this case, as in so many others, there is no consensus, therefore all “opinions” deserve respect and thoughtful analysis. So, perhaps for the last time (for now, at least), here are two articles for your consideration.
