Letter to the editor: Climate solutions

What exactly do you mean? The same loan program that saw Solyndra and a few other failures ended up turning a profit. Are you saying we don't need more profit?

Opinion: Climate deniers: Nothing to see here

I'll add to "There have been at least 3 major ice ages that geologists know about." So, what you are saying is, the earth has responded wildly to forcings in the past; therefore, there is no reason to believe it is responding to the forcing we are causing. What?

Umm, Bob, maybe you aren't aware, but the world is bigger than the continental US. "... a strong signal is found in proportions of both weaker and stronger hurricanes: the proportion of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes has increased at a rate of ~25–30 % per °C of global warming...This global signal is reproduced in all ocean basins." https://link.springer.com/article/10....

Letter to the editor: ‘Christian terrorists’

You are painting all Muslims according to the miscreants that call themselves Muslims, and ignoring the miscreants that cal themselves Christians.

Letter to the editor: ACA distortions

Math. In this country, if a person needs critical care, providers are obligated to provide it. Someone is paying for that. Who? Well, to some extent, providers charge extra to the people who do pay to cover the costs of those who don't. That's why simple things are stupid expensive at a hospital. If you can figure out a better way to make the freeloaders contribute something than an individual mandate, I'd like to hear it. Better, I'd like for our reps to hear it.

Also, because people without insurance have a hard time getting into a doctor's office, they tend to wait until the pain is really bad, then go to the ER. Now, an ER is about the least cost effective way to provide treatment. Not only that, but they are not obligated to treat the root cause; so, the person goes back again and again. In contrast, if they have insurance, whether they wanted to buy it or not, they can get into a doctor's office and get the problem fixed. Getting the problem fixed at a doctor's office is less expensive than repeatedly not getting it fixed at the ER, and the rest of us are paying for it one way or the other.

Lawrence mayor takes stand against Trump's withdrawal from Paris climate agreement

Can you identify the research study which refutes Arrhenius 1896?

It has been challenged any number of times. It has not been successfully refuted ever.

Bob, there is this thing called 'science'. You don't have to understand it for it to be a more accurate reflection of reality than your wishful thinking.
