Mr. Jim Wessels has no idea what he is writing about regarding S.B. 3760. Here is a summary of the bill.

Sorry - Mr. Wessels' letter is a lot of claptrap!

JEFF failed to mention in your letter that Harry Teague definitely voted against Obama's 800 billion dollar health care reform bill, and that alone makes it worth while to vote him back into office.

Pearce was there once before and didn't do a damned thing to help anyone around here.
Think about it

"Climate has to do with Milankovitch cycles (Earth's relationship to its solar system and its axis of rotation), volcanoes, plate tectonics, mid-ocean ridges, carbon dioxide, methane, and oxides of nitrogen and sulfur, continental drift, ocean currents and the relationships between the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. Climate scientists have to be knowledgeable about Earth history, geology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and astronomy.

I don't mean to disparage atmospheric science because there are many well educated and erudite atmospheric scientists in research and academia and with government agencies and many of them have perhaps educated themselves about global warming. But to imply that being an atmospheric scientist means one is competent to judge whether global warming is occurring or not is dishonest. It is in the same category as implying that Fox News is objective, Sarah Palin is qualified to be president, Rush Limbaugh is honest, and Glenn Beck is the latter day Adam Smith.


What about solar impact. Does the sun not have anything to do with climate? We have just experienced, the last half of the 20th century, the highest levels of solar activity in the last 400 years, and by some estimations, in the top 10% of solar activity for the entire Holocene.

Would not an increase in solar activity have an impact on climate?

From above: "I don't mean to disparage atmospheric science" ..... but I'm going to any way because I have nothing more to defend my position.

CO2 is a greenhouse gas found where? In the atmosphere. The question is whether or not CO2 can/will/has had an impact on climate. Since the only place CO2 could possibly have an impact on climate is in the atmosphere, then atmospheric scientists would be the best for determining that impact, if any.
