Global warming

Resident provides some feedback on the issue of climate change

I read the letter by J. Adams with interest but nowhere does it mention that, as evidenced by analysis of fossilized tree rings, we have gone through global warnings cycles for every 450 to 500 years for thousands of years so it is obvious that C02 emissions are not the primary cause although the cycle that is overdue and that we are now entering may be exacerbated slightly by the emissions.

Unfortunately, the zealots on both sides of the argument have put the politicians into a state of sitting on the fence so as to not upset supporters of both views and nothing is being done to prepare for the cycle we are now entering regardless of the cause.

Incidentally, a super computer program put together by a British university by amalgamating numerous other programs from around the world to predict the results of global warming showed in B.C., we are lucky as we should not experience more than a five per cent change from our current conditions. However, such is not the case for the southern U.S. states who are already experiencing major water supply problems.
