Is man the cause?

Is man the cause? Carmel Pine Cone – August 26, 2022

Your editorial, “Nuclear or bust,” assumes the widely held view that man’s actions are responsible for climate change. But are they? Long ago we had the “ice age,” no humans were present and the age ended “naturally.” Nature has some rhythm which has yet to be quantified.

The assumption is that man is responsible for climate change. There are credible scientists who disagree, but their views are never publicized. (Goggle: “climate change skeptics.”) Before we continue this climate-change hysteria and the very expensive “remedies,” perhaps we should find out what role nature plays in the matter.
