Re. " Rohrabacher dismisses global warming, warns of China (Aug. 9): U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) has been around way too long. It troubles me that he keeps getting re-elected to my congressional district. He is a Republican representative who distinguishes himself more by demagoguery than accomplishment. But you be the judge. This is a four-minute snippet of one of the incendiary speeches Rohrabacher has blessed us with during some 26 years as our representative for the 48th Congressional District.

UC Irvine researchers have linked an increased precipitation and fresh-water flow into oceans to global warming, according to a study released Monday. Using NASA and other world-scale satellite observations, researchers tracked total monthly water volume flowing from land into the oceans and found an average annual increase of 1.5%. "That might not sound like much… but after a few decades, it's huge," according to a statement from Jay Famiglietti, UC Irvine Earth system science professor and principal investigator on the study, which will be published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) referred to President Eisenhower's farewell address Thursday evening in his explanation for why he believes global warming is a "total fraud. " In the 1961 speech - famously known for its admonition of an emerging military-industrial complex - the former five-star general also warned of a similarly captive grip on U.S. public policy wielded by scientists and the government that funds them. "There's so much money that has gone into science research projects," Rohrabacher said, "and they have used it to intimidate people who disagree with their attempt to frighten all of us into changing our lives and giving up our freedoms to make choices.

Last year was the hottest year on record in the U.S., and the effects of global warming are already showing up in our backyards. The state took a big step forward in 2006 by adopting AB 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, but now it's time for Congress to act. The good news is that we can reduce global-warming pollution nationwide by harnessing America's vast renewable energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal and biomass...

Huntington Beach Rep. Dana Rohrabacher hasn't been in step with President Bush on issues such as immigration, but he stuck closer to Bush this week in his comments on climate change. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hobnobbed with British Prime Minister Tony Blair in Long Beach earlier this week to talk about how to reduce emissions that some consider responsible for global warming. In response, Rohrabacher's office sent out a press release offering his take on "the myth of human-caused global warming."

I cannot understand the reason for letting dogs on Balboa Island beaches. Very often I see dogs on the beaches before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. (and after 9 and before 5) on leashes (or not), peeing and pooping in the same sand that, a short time later, unaware children will be sitting in, digging in and using to build castles. Parents, too, seem unaware. Isn't this just plain nuts? I am trying to understand why this health hazard exists and how it might be remedied. Dariela Wilson Balboa Island * Going to press doesn't help As a resident of Costa Mesa, I am having some difficulty understanding where we are heading with regard to our local militia, or Police Department, and our city's governing body.

Re. " Climate-change science is immune to politics ," Mailbag, (Sept. 3): Letter writer Jamie Dow claims science has proven man-made global warming and that this conclusion has nothing to do with politics. I believe she is mistaken. Most of the reports regarding global warming are issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Many of its 3,000 members are not scientists but simply United Nations political appointees. The few real scientists on the panel have often disputed the panel's findings, but their opposing comments have not been included in any of the U.N.'s published reports.

Re. "Climate change talk shows ignorance," (Mailbag, Aug. 21): In response to Jamie Dow's piece regarding U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher's statement that global warming is a "fraud," let me set the record straight. I've read that temperatures aren't rising but falling. In fact, since the early 1990s, we've had global cooling. The facts on this are so embarrassing that the global-warming advocates had to change the name to "climate change. " I've read that hurricanes are actually lessening in number, not getting worse.

I do not mind criticism, but not for an inaccurate portrayal of a statement or position I have taken on an issue as mentioned in the letter to the editor ("Rohrabacher's wife least of our worries, April 19). As I stated in May last year, it was falsely reported that I suggested "clear-cutting the world's forests" to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions. I have never, and would never, make such a suggestion or support such a policy. Once again, those with a global agenda have created a straw man by misrepresenting the position of their critics.

After receiving my grandparents' letter about the four women taking a last spin on the Balboa carousel, I had to collect my tears and start to laugh about all the fun I have had on that wonderful carousel. It breaks my heart to think that they are going to take apart a piece of so many families' traditions to have a patio. I spent so many summers standing in line watching it go round and round to pick out my favorite horse to ride. As soon as they took my token, I would run as fast as I could and jump on for the two-minute ride.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry - who brought his presidential campaign to Corona del Mar last week - may not believe in global warming, but perhaps a new study about the effects climate change could have on the economy could get him to reconsider the science. Expected beach erosion and the death of sea life caused by warmer waters could wash away hundreds of millions in tourism and tax dollars statewide, according to a recent study by San Francisco State economists. If the environmental reasons are not enough to get the attention of those who don't believe in the man-made causes of global warming, perhaps the economic reasons will prove convincing.
