Theory intact

January 6, 2001


To the editor:

The Journal-World's editorial suggesting that recent brutal cold weather is evidence that the greenhouse science community's thesis is faulty ("Global Warming?" Dec. 27) asks a timely question: "Where are those folks who, only a few months ago, were forecasting dire consequences throughout the world due to global warming?"

Well, the answer to that question is this: "We're still here, and as confident as ever in our global warming impact theory."

As a matter of fact, this season's severe cold fits precisely into the greenhouse science community's long-standing prediction that global warming will create extremes of cold occasionally as well as extreme heat accompanied by increasingly violent storms and swings of weather as the earth's overall temperature continues to rise.

Witness today's alarming meltdown of the polar icecaps.
