Trump plan pushes fossil fuel expansion, undermines climate law

The Trump administration released a resource management plan today that would expand federal fossil fuel development across a huge swath of southwestern Colorado, threatening a growing organic agriculture hub and undermining the state's new climate law. The federal administration's plans directly contradict Colorado's new law calling for steep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, a 50 percent cut by 2030 and a 90 percent reduction by 2050.

BoCC cool on climate order

The Board of County Commissioners has gone on record stating opposition to an executive order being drafted by Gov. John Hickenlooper aimed at reducing climate change.

The order would impose a 35 percent reduction in greenhouse emissions from electricity generating plants by the year 2030.

Controversy continues

Steve Lyons in his Oct. 28 letter makes my point. There is controversy over global warming and climate change (he said, she said).

The sky is falling

Those who question the validity of global warming are called "climate change deniers." The same should be said about those who cling to the expert opinions of famous scientists Al Gore and Michael Moore.

Warming schmorming

All the technical talk aside, references are not necessary to analyze global warming. Anyone with a lick of sense understands that it's not happening, never mind what a conservative newspaper's opinion page I regularly read refers to as "climate cluckers" would like to think.

Check references; don't cast slurs on half-truths

Once again, as usual, responders to my letter about climate and data misinformation come back with the typical slurs against both individuals and organizations that are trying to educate the populace. Both responses appeared in the DCI on Oct. 28.

Climate change believers are costing us jobs

Since the climate change believers, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the media have decided carbon dioxide, an essential for life, is a pollutant, coal-fired power plants and coal mines are closing. Delta County has lost hundreds of good paying jobs.

Check the source for 'climate misinformation'

In his letter to the DCI editor (10/21/15), William H. Snyer expressed concern about "climate misinformation, deception and outright lies." I have the same concern. But I have a different take on where it is coming from.

Just to be on the safe side

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.


Thomas Wills' letter to the editor (10/14/15) didn't cite a single primary data source. He used the usual ad hominem attacks, i.e., climate deniers.

Climate 'deniers' counter science untruths

This is a response to Thomas Wills and his incorrect remarks regarding both Mike Mason and his views on climate and climate scientists. Mike Mason offered good advice -- check the facts.
