Letter writer: Climate change is a reality

Graphic by Lori Deaton

[Re: “Climate-change Believers Betray Their Naiveté,” July 8, Xpress], climate change is a reality. We must begin to reduce our addiction to the burning of fossil fuels. Leave the stuff in the ground!

It is imperative that we seriously begin the transition to alternative, renewable energy sources. We have the technology, and I truly believe there is a majority support to move forward with this.

It can’t happen from a place of fear. It must be the collective initiative to do the right thing.

— Debby Blankenburg

    Such a silly letter. Of course climate change exists. It has existed since the beginning of time. Yet here we are, with all of these green hypocrites calling for the end of fossil fuels, while continuing to use fossil fuels. If they really believed in this nonsense and took it seriously, they would abandon everything that they have in their lives thanks to FFs. Vehicle, shelter, clothing, food, medical care, electronics, job, heat, a/c, medicines, etc. But they don’t. Because it so easy to sit behind your oil-based computer and wax poetic on how much you care about the planet, but you don’t take one single step that is going to inconvenience YOU by eliminating FFs from your life.

    There are millions of people who suffer the delusion of ‘global warming – climate change’ , the greatest hoax on the planet.
    Such indoctrination clearly comes from government screwls.
