Local View: GOP pushing inequality

Reader's View: Where's evidence of climate-denial conspiracy?
Letters like the one July 5, "Don't believe climate deniers," that describe cataclysmic-sounding situations as evidence of the certainty of man-caused global warming are often livid at the mere mention of famous-name climatologists and climate-denier organizations which doubt it...

Reader's View: Climate skeptics hard to believe
The June 26 letter, "Scientific theories aren't truth, but educated opinions," seemed designed to deceive readers. It reminded me of other articles placed for the purpose of undermining climate science. It was deceitful for the letter to suggest science is an opinion. Gravity isn't...

Reader's View: Don't believe climate deniers
The June 26 letter, "Scientific theories aren't truth, but educated opinions," seemed to be another writing from the denial machine operated by the International Climate Science Coalition and other climate-science deniers. They often refuse to disclose their funding sources, claiming...

Reader's View: Scientific theories aren't truth, but educated opinions
Being a skeptic about the causes of climate change is not only "quite all right," as Energy Secretary Rick Perry told CNBC's "Squawk Box" this month; it is crucially necessary for science, especially one as complicated and immature as climate science, to advance ("Rick Perry just...

Reader's View: If News Tribune won't support climate science, we must
After decades of discussing and rebutting one faux or previously explained issue after another, those of us who try to spread important facts about the seriousness of global warming still find that what we say is constantly lied about, used to misinform, or inadequately explained,...

The April 4 story in the News Tribune, "Duluth welcomes first saltie of the season," stated, "Thanks to a relatively mild winter and early spring, the Lake Ontario arrived just a few days after the record for the earliest saltie in the Twin Ports." In contrast, the March 25 Chronicle...

Reader's view: Public swayed by alternative facts on climate
The April 9 letter, "Limit climate debate to real science," contained false-premise assertions and insupportable accusations, inadvertently showcasing everything egregiously wrong with the man-caused global-warming issue. Polling has never validated scientific conclusions. Simplify...
