Re "Let's find a compromise on climate" (Viewpoints, Feb. 9): I am growing weary of the variety of emotional, misleading, and policy-useless statements like most warming since the 1950s is human caused or 97 percent of climate scientists agree humans are contributing to warming, neither of which leads to the conclusion we need to substantially increase energy prices and freeze and starve more poor people to death for the greater good.
Yet, that is the direction we are heading. Sacrifices and huge investments? By who and for what? CO2 levels have increased in the last few years, but there has been no corresponding increase in global temperatures for the last 17 years, and contrary to Mr Meyers assertion, our ice sheets have been expanding, no vanishing. Did he miss the ships becoming ice bound in Antarctica recently?. Wind, solar, and other renewables are the energies of the future-and always will be- the very distant future.
