Letter: Global warming: ‘It’s a hoax’Over the past couple weeks the Woodbury Bulletin has carried some interesting commentary pertaining to “global warming.”
Over the past couple weeks the Woodbury Bulletin has carried some interesting commentary pertaining to “global warming.”
A recent Viewpoint article was very reasoned in its approach, asking for some genuine evaluation and observation rather than insisting your side absolutely has the right answer and must prevail.
My own humble opinion is global warming is simply a hoax. I base that on my own observations sitting here in my thankfully warm house while the temperature outside is a true non-wind chill fifteen degrees below Fahrenheit.
Two years ago at about this same time, I recall the same differential when my back patio door was being replaced. It was actually off from the house leaving a gaping six by seven foot complete opening to the outside cold before the installation of the new door.
Six months from now it will be hot. What is the point? We have cycles of hot and cold built into our seasons. And over the long term, we have cycles of seasons which are sometimes colder and sometimes hotter; over decades and centuries and even millennia.
We may be in a warming cycle now, although tonight it doesn’t feel like it, but that will naturally be followed by a cooler cycle. It is inevitable. That is the way climate works.
I like the Jan. 16 Viewpoint writer’s point he stated with the scholarly Latin phrase “cui bono?” or “who is to benefit?” Because it is obvious to me who the beneficiaries of the global warming hoax are: the energy nihilists — who, by the way when we were in a cooling phase, predicted a coming ice age — who simply seek to control our lives.
The Jan. 23 Bulletin, of course, has the predictable replies to the Viewpoint writer keeping up in their usual good tone and, of course, slamming the writers use of Latin phrases.
I actually like the Latin and I would adjure the Jan. 16 V iewpoint writer to continue contributing either cum or sans Latin; or both and may illegitimi non-carborundum be his personal motto.
