Reader's view: Man-made climate change a matter of speculation
I love science. I am blown away by precision bombing, space travel, wrist computers, cancer cures, and other scientific advancements, all grounded in the immutable laws of math, physics and chemistry. Not nearly so impressive or consequential are theories masquerading as science....

City Councilor's View: March for Science, climate march: good reminders of local policy initiatives
Two recent Saturdays brought excellent demonstrations of community support behind science and preparing for the threat of climate change. I was glad to speak alongside so many other excellent organizations and individuals at both the March for Science on April 22 and the People's...

Reader's view: March for Science was newsworthy
How disappointed I was to turn to my hometown newspaper, seeking coverage of the successful local March for Science, only to find not even one picture of the estimated 1,200 people who turned up at Leif Erickson Park, the Lakewalk, and Canal Park to protest in solidarity with hundreds...

Reader's View: Dangerous to turn our backs on science
I was thrilled to join hundreds of others in the March for Science on Earth Day ("March for Science planned Saturday in Duluth," April 20). It was exhilarating to see so many Duluthians concerned about our environment and about the dangerous attitude that political ideology trumps...

Reader's view: DNT, don't ignore this march
My family participated in the March for Science on Earth Day ("March for Science planned Saturday in Duluth," April 20). By unofficial estimates, we were joined by 1,000 to 1,500 others. There were parents with small children in strollers, several individuals who walked with canes,...

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: Spreading climate untruths fraudulently sways public
The April 16 letter, "Public swayed by alternative facts on climate," doubled down on the notion of "alternative facts" by insinuating that the majority of climate scientists misrepresent facts (despite volumes of conclusive scientific evidence) that prove carbon dioxide traps heat...

Other View: Paris climate agreement still matters
Donald Trump has been president for only three months and already he has given up, reversed course, or been stymied on a wide range of campaign promises. Given how awful some of those ideas were — ending Obamacare, declaring China a currency manipulator, ordering a blanket federal...

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: Eager to refute, scientists agree on climate
A letter on April 16 ("Public swayed by alternative facts on climate") argued that the scientific consensus on human-caused climate change may be fake — like gold-plated lead hyped as gold. However, if any scientist had good data and solid analysis that differed from the consensus,...
