Letter to the Editor – Climate Change

Dear Editor,

The level of media induced fear on man-made climate change is out of control. I beseech everyone to use your senses and make reasonable deductions from your own observations. In no way are we in a climate emergency. Statistically, there are fewer fires, flooding, hurricanes and tornadoes than in previous decades. Polar bears are flourishing, not disappearing. There is nothing urgent about ocean levels rising about the thickness of a dime annually. There were many periods in our history that were much hotter than today. For example, in the 30’s, when C02 levels were lower than today, the temperatures hovered over 100 in many States. There were many more days over 100 degrees than in the last decade. The earth goes in cycles of warming and cooling. We do well in warming periods and face shortages, famines and wars in colder times. Remember in the 70’s when there were fears of another ice age? Climate doesn’t change in a decade or two. It has to be examined in terms of centuries or millennia. Studies on man-made climate change are based on models and supposition. To my knowledge, man-made climate change is a thesis, not proven fact. No amount of money will change the climate! Mother Nature will do her thing with or without us.

Remember too that C02 is our friend. It is a basic element of life. It’s invisible. It does not cause warming. It’s the other way around. Warming allows the atmosphere to hold more C02 and this can take hundreds of years to play out. C02 levels are lower than they have ever been in our history. Water vapour is a much more influential factor in climate but no one is talking about it. Some say we are still in a C02 deficit. There are many benefits to increased C02: greening of the earth is accelerating, harvests are greater.

‘Global warming’ was replaced by ‘climate change’; I guess things weren’t warming quite like the alarmists wished so they switched to a phrase that is all encompassing so everything from hot, cold, wet, to dry could all be attributed to man-made climate change. With the successful use of fear, governments can blithely take our money to ‘fix’ it and we happily hand it over because they are going to ‘save’ us! Have a look out your window. Make your own assessment and take it easy on believing the climate alarmists. They want a redistribution of wealth and a new political system. If we play their game, they will achieve it.

  1. Holy misinformation Bat people of North Grenville, did I really read a letter to the editor last week by climate denier, Christine Dorothy of somewhere, with credentials and proofs of facts, all conveniently absent from her missive?!

    Did Christine D., really say:
    “ In no way are we in a climate emergency. Statistically, there are fewer fires, flooding, hurricanes and tornadoes than in previous decades. Polar bears are flourishing, not disappearing. There is nothing urgent about ocean levels rising … annually…”

    I don’t understand your call to arms Christine Dorothy??

    I did as you suggested and checked my “senses and (made) reasonable deductions from (my) own observations…” and uhmmm, everything I verified through science, research and objective reporting tells me that we ARE in a global warming/ climate affected emergency.

    Christine, I researched thoroughly for any proofs of the words and phrases stated by you as fact…and I found nada! Nothing like what you purported.

    I believe you meant to say as SCIENTISTS ARE REPORTING: “that there are many more fires, much more flooding, hurricanes and tornadoes than in previous decades.” But you actually wrote the opposite! To what gain Christine? Why the alternate facts?

    Christine D. You also said and I quote
    1.“Polar bears are flourishing, not disappearing.
    2. “There is nothing urgent about ocean levels rising….”.
    3. “There were many more days over 100 degrees than in the last decade. The earth goes in cycles of warming and cooling.” Hey Christine…. Good on ya- that #3, is actually a true fact! Not sure though of its relevance to the full totality and mass of gibberish to which you suggested we pay attention.
    You also said:
    4. “Remember in the 70’s when there were fears of another ice age?” Lyrics Christine of “The Beatles” perhaps? Oh yes I do recall the scare prompted by Prof. Hubert Lambat the University of East Anglia even warned us that: “the full impact of the new ice age will not be upon us for another 10,000 years…” I guess that was pretty scary for us back then! I guess…. *(Windsor Star September 9, 1972.)

    Yup, even the notable ‘Christian Science Monitor” felt it important in 1972 to warn Americans that a “British climate expert predicts a new ice age…” however they did defer to reason and state that the experts were talking “conditionally” and “possible long, long term weather trends”

    But again Christine you did present us with another verifiable fact:”Climate doesn’t change in a decade or two. It has to be examined in terms of centuries or millennia. Studies on man-made climate change are based on models and supposition. To my knowledge, man-made climate change is a thesis, not proven fact. No amount of money will change the climate! Mother Nature will do her thing with or without us.”

    Oh boy….Christine D. Well, your letter was entertaining at least.

    Again, perhaps if ‘Citizen suggestions’ (as Christine D. made) are relevant in letters to the editor, then perhaps I can suggest something much more fulfilling to grasp in North Grenville: we just became the #1 community in Canada for community activism/health conscious activities! So let’s set a second goal and have:

    NORTH GRENVILLE BECOME THE MOST VACCINATED COMMUNITY IN CANADA. What do readers say?

    Or would that be too chill a response to our (I think) resident climate change denier! Yup, some letter that wuz Ms. Christine Dorothy.

  2. I agree with Graham Waymark. aAs a retired Environmental Biologist and Agro-climatologist for over 30 years in Kemptville, I can honestly say that the article written by Christine Dorothy is a “LOAD OF CRAP”. And that is a mild observation. I copied this letter written by Ms. Dorothy to the NG Times and I posted it on-line. I studied, observed and gave talks about climate change for 35 years, which probably started long before this letter-writer, with her QAnon theory that climate change does not exist,was even born. Ms Dorothy does not even understand CO2 and is absolutely clueless how short wave radiation and long wave radiation travel through the atmosphere. I do not understand why the NG Times even accepted her letter and gave her the time of the day. Because it is a lot of “horse hockey’.
