Reader's View: Where's Trump's evidence climate change a hoax?
In 1896, a Swedish chemist named Svante Arrhenius, a Nobel laureate, first explained the greenhouse effect and determined that the burning of fossil fuels was warming the planet. In 1960, the U.S. Army drilled through thousands of feet of ice in Greenland and uncovered clear evidence...

Reader's View: This is no time to chill on climate change
Although all of us would like to think the recent April cold spell meant we can relax because human-caused climate change is no longer of concern, that is certainly not the case. While chilly in North America and Canada, around the globe, this was one of the warmest Aprils on record,...

Reader's View: Climate deniers not backed by facts
It's always refreshing to read a commentary from an aquatic ecologist like David Gerhart. In his April 5 commentary (Local View: "Climate is always changing — but not this fast") he mentioned and set right several false claims made by climate deniers. First, of course, climate...

Reader's View: Heed the warnings on climate change
The editorial cartoon and the "Local View" column by David Gerhart ("Climate is always changing — but not this fast") on the April 5 News Tribune Opinion page should be duplicated, distributed widely, and, hopefully, given some definite citizen brain study before it is too late....

Reader's View: Listen to the climate scientists
The Feb. 15 "National View" commentary, "Climate policy could kill more people than climate change," was eye-opening. The head-in-the-sand global-warming skeptics apparently will continue to deny the obvious until the last trace of fossil fuel on Earth has been consumed.
