To the Editor,
Re: Tornado opportunists wrong on all accounts with climate changes, Guest Comment, May 29.
With all collective thinking, whether it be a belief in global warming caused by humans, global warming caused by the sun and the Earth’s orbit, or no global warming, it is easy to pick out flaws.
This is because collective thinking is strongly based on the raw emotional intelligence becoming of an ant colony rather than common sense of one thoughtful individual.
The international climate change coalition, whom Tom Harris represents, took the opportunity to refute that global warming causes an increase in tornados, but the contrary because of certain studies.
He gave no specifics. Harris also used the opportunity to encourage the continued use of oil over other alternate forms of energy.
Common sense says the Earth’s climate has always been strongly dominated by the ocean and geography.
And when cooler summers prevail, the ocean and the wind does not distribute the equatorial heat as much, leaving a more striking contrast between cold fronts and warm fronts which is conducive for tornados.
Common sense also says the present human way of life of raping the Earth of its resources for the sake of materialism and the subsequent tax revenue to keep the unsustainable government systems going is destroying the planet.
World trade was to add a spice to life, but not dominate it.
Oil will run scarce and hugely expensive in the future and unless you plan for the future, society will be short lived.
