Reader's view: Population, modern industry altered our relationship with nature
The climate-change issue persists as a controversy in the U.S. despite international consensus as to its economic, social, and political threat. I have two perspectives I'd like to add to the discussion.

Reader's view: Mild winter only fuels climate denial
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...

Reader's View: Limit climate debate to real science
A letter in the News Tribune was wrong to suggest that scientists are stifling debate on climate change (Reader's View: "Resist calls to smother climate debate," March 21). There actually is a healthy debate on this topic. What the scientific community is opposed to is people interjecting...

Reader's View: Clean energy promises jobs for Minnesota
Bravo to the writer of the April 3 "Local View" column, "Cherished lands like BWCAW require federal-level protection." With climate change upon us and global warming hastened by human activity, it is encouraging to know young people take the responsibility to protect the environment....

Reader's view: Don't blast Gore; global warming is real
Most deniers of human-caused global warming waste no time in using former Vice President Al Gore as their whipping boy any time something he said is even remotely considered in error.

Reader's view: Resist calls to smother climate debate
Climate activists apparently feel opinions contrary to their own about the causes and consequences of climate change are not only wrong but so offensive they must be kept out of the News Tribune (Reader’s View: “Don't publish letters that deny climate change,” March 5). I am...

Politicians unqualified to deny climate science
I question a question in a Feb. 25 letter (Reader’s View: “Are we being manipulated on climate?”). It asked, “Could it be a gullible population is being manipulated for political reasons?” The fact is, the fossil-fuel industry financially favors conservative politicians...

Reader's View: Climate deniers are being hoodwinked
A letter on Feb. 25 asked whether climate is changing. "Yes," it answered. "Recall the ice ages?" Numbers don't lie, so when there are disagreements we turn to the numbers. Is what we are experiencing now like the past ice age? Or the one before that? Or before that?

Reader's View: Climate change a fact beyond all doubt
I am moved to respond to a Feb. 25 letter ("Are we being manipulated on climate?") with the famous quote from former Oklahoma Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan: "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion but not to his own facts."

Reader's View: Are we being manipulated on climate?
Here are further thoughts on climate change. Is the climate changing? Yes, and it has been for thousands of years. Recall the ice ages? There was global warming thereafter. Then there was the little ice age from 1300 until 1870, during which Europe and North America suffered much...
