It is amazing that in this era of mass communication there are people who still confuse weather with climate change or global warming. Whether it be temperature, hurricanes, snowstorms, rain, etc., these are local conditions described as “weather” for your particular area. They fluctuate from day to day and from year to year. Any one local fluctuation in temperature or snowfall does not in itself determine global warming. Global warming or climate change comes from the mass collection of weather data and other conditions worldwide. From those who collect and interpret this data, the climate, to the dismay of the uninformed, is warming.

It has been written that those who can see both sides of a disagreement don’t have any money tied up either way. With regard to the proposed Gogebic and PolyMet mining projects, because of promised jobs, one group stands to profit a lot. So what’s there to lose?

Someone has taken a steamroller to the American character. This came to me as I listened to Jireh Mabamba and Rogier Gregoire at the Martin Luther King Day rally in the DECC auditorium. The American character used to be defined by grit, devotion, courage and self-reliance. But as 20th century industrialization spread wealth and consumption, our connections became eroded. These talented speakers offered a clear message: We have more power, love and hope in our character —as demonstrated by Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. King and Nelson Mandela. These 20th-century leaders urged civic disobedience and spent years in jail, demonstrating the reality of a higher law.
