Mr. Mason in his letter denying climate change (10/21/15) talked about the satellite temperature record, but cited no articles. I was able to find some charts online, but none of them agree with Mr. Mason's assertions. http://www.drroyspencer.com/latest-global-temperatures/, www.skepticalscience.com/satellite-measurements-warming-troposphere.htm, and http://nsstc.uah.edu/climate/.
William H. Snyer, writing in the same edition of the DCI, did mention three climate skeptics by name so I was able to look them up. All three appear to be well-paid writers and speakers with connections to the Heartland Institute, a "think tank" which funnels money from the oil industry to climate change deniers. One of the men, Jay Lehr, science director for the Heartland Institute, has the distinction of having served three months in prison for an unrelated episode of dishonesty. It would be wonderful if these gentlemen were correct, but as long as 97 percent of scientists agree that climate change is real I'm going to vote for clean energy to be on the safe side.
At about 9:50 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, officers of the Delta Police Department were dispatched to a robbery reported at Arby's, located at 107 Gunnison River Drive. An extensive search of the area was conducted and the suspect was not located.
The suspect was reported to have walked into Arby's and after a brief conversation with an employee, was able to leave the store with a small amount of cash and coins.
