Letters: Debate on climate change rages on

I read with interest the article on the effects of the Canada – U.S. pipeline and its relationship to climate change.

However, the former Director of the U.S. Weather Satellite Service, now part of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, Dr. Fred Singer, currently heads the Non-Governmental International Panel on Climate Change.

He co-authored a report which says in part: “There is no convincing scientific evidence that the human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other ‘Green House Gases’ is causing or will, in the foreseeable future cause catastrophic heating of Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate”.

He attributes the false “Climate change scare to ‘U.N. ‘Hobby Climatologists,’” flawed climate models and the misreading (or misreporting) of data (carbon dioxide is essential to plant life).

The report was signed by over 31,000 concurring scientists.

Others feel that the current “Climate Change” scare is fueled by the U.N. and National Governments in order to gain control of private carbon energy production and profit by implementing “Green Carbon Taxes,” fees and selling carbon allowances.

The Earth has seen many climate changes over the past millions of years due to natural causes including: irregular solar activity, volcanoes, axis tilt, and plate tectonics, long before humans started using oil.
