Global Warming

Someone wake me up and tell me that it was a bad dream, that Congressman Dana Rohrabacher did not say "the myth of human-caused global warming." And please tell me that he did not say that those who believe global warming is real also believe that rain forests cause greenhouse gases and are contributing to the problem. And did he really offer that the "global warming alarmists" simply want to control people's lives and expand government power? According to a story in Thursday's Pilot by Alicia Robinson, he said all that.

For a front-page article, Brianna Bailey’s article on sea levels (“As sea level rises, unease follows,” Feb. 6) was being way too politically correct when she started the article with “Whether or not climate change is to blame....” She does not dispute that the sea level is rising and neither does anyone else — it is being measured all the time. Some parts of the world are already being flooded. To beg the question of whether climate change is to blame is too P.C. Of course it is to blame!

In the early 1970s, National Geographic printed an article on the effects of smog on the Earth’s temperature using the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa as a model. As I remember the article, that eruption lofted 25 cubic kilometers of pumice soot and ash, which then took two years to be spread throughout the stratosphere by the jet stream. This blocked out some of the sun’s rays, and the overall average temperature of the planet was lowered by 4 degrees. The effect lasted seven years, causing snow storms on the East Coast of the U.S. during summers, and creating general agricultural difficulty worldwide.

JOSEPH N. BELL UC Irvine chemistry professor F. Sherwood Rowland has just added a footnote to the list of achievements that won him a share of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1995 for his research on the depletion of the Earth's ozone layer. Last week, he kept an overflow lay audience at the Newport Beach Public Library auditorium deeply engaged for more than two hours with a highly technical explanation of global warming -- and I was there being educated.

Of all the issues Debbie Cook and Dana Rohrabacher disagree on in their congressional campaigns, perhaps the most stark are their stances on the environment. Democrat Cook, the mayor of Huntington Beach, has earned a reputation as an environmentalist while GOP incumbent Rep. Rohrabacher for years has ridiculed global-warming theories. So it comes as little surprise that Cook recently received a second big environmental endorsement in her campaign. The California League of Conservation Voters announced it is joining the Sierra Club in backing Cook in the election, citing the candidate?

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.

Our youngest daughter graduated from Newport Harbor High School on Thursday and I feel compelled to publicly and profusely thank the education community of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District for the excellent experience our five children have had in the public schools here over the past 22 years. Each school — from Mariners Elementary to Ensign Intermediate to Newport Harbor High — has provided an environment conducive to learning and curriculum that has prepared our children to succeed in challenging college programs.
