Your latest issue [“Living Green,” Nov. 17 Xpress) makes it abundantly clear that you guys are way behind the info-curve regarding the issue of Man-Made Global Warming (MMGW).
Your [feature] story, “Living Green,” while written within the general context of legitimate and noble environmental goals and practices, continually upholds the abject fiction that human activity — primarily the burning of fossil fuels for energy — is causing the Earth’s atmosphere to warm. The Earth hasn’t even been warming — actually cooling — since 1998.
MMGW has been definitively shown to be a scientific fraud. The “science” upon which it was based, having been both fraudulent and purchased by the interests that would make trillions from the resulting “carbon taxes,” has been exposed as ridiculously flawed with intent.
Has your editorial staff never heard of the “Climategate” scandal from one year ago in which the fraud was resoundingly exposed? Evidently not, because when you publish a feature story that affirms the fraudulent concept of MMGW over and over again, I have to conclude that your editorial staff is composed of people who have a very small universe of info-sources — or have become “true believers” in the MMGW mythology to the extent that no objective information gets through the filters.
One’s “carbon footprint” is an NLP brainwashing term that has been exposed as more Orwellian terminology by the control structure that is imposing its agenda upon us all.

Green Scene reporter Susan Andrew responds: The international scientific community is in broad agreement. An increasing body of evidence provides a collective picture of a warming climate, and that human activities are altering Earth’s atmosphere.
