Climate change industry has peaked & started inevitable decline

To The Daily Sun,

Remember the brutal snow and cold of last winter as proof that global warming is done. Of course that was silly. As if one cold winter in America signifies any long-term trend. Yet, the paradoxical, global warming alarmists are sounding the alarm regarding our current mild winter. Anyway you figure it, we're gonna pay for this mild winter, they scold us. The seas are rising and the planet is cooking they shriek with, "the sky is falling, condescension." Though I don't remember where I read it, some apparently indoctrinated alarmist lamented "when the end time comes, we can get in the kayaks and paddle off in the choking smog."

Apparently, arks are just so yesterday and this person thinks we will all be living in China.

Perhaps these folks have not heard the news, but, "the natural sciences tell us that the alarmists got everything wrong. Anthropogenic carbon release is not dangerous or even harmful, but extremely beneficial. Fifteen percent of the world's agricultural production is due to increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the air, so says Ari Halperin who has researched and discussed at length the one sided selections of data and the exaggerated estimates of climate sensitivity by these "settled science" climate alarmists.

They might want to check out the writings of MIT professor Richard Lindzen, who has revealed the massive corruption, collusion, money laundering investments and bullying that has taken place to stifle any objective discussion regarding the validity of man-made global warming. Sadly, this corruption has infested American colleges and scientific institutions. Ideological indoctrination and political polarization has ensued. Clearly, climate alarmism is the real problem, notes Ari Halperin. It has already caused severe economic damage and has nothing to do with saving our environment or saving humanity.

There are signs of hope on the horizon however. Yale's Climate and Energy Institute will close by the end of June, reports Clarice Feldman. Apparently, the lack of warming over the past two decades, combined with the revelation of the many years of adjusted and doctored data, has caused donors to look elsewhere for the next great cause to save all of humanity.

The climate change industry has seemingly peaked and has begun it's inevitable decline, leaving many unlucky Yale undergrads shocked to find out that they have been duped by this money-grubbing, power-drunk industry, and will have to seek out another career choice. Cheer up students, it looks like the left will continue to keep social justice and inequality alive as viable career options for some time to come.

However, who will alert students across college campuses who are taking courses to "boost climate change/sustainability" like the ones at the University California, Irvine? Anthony J. Sadar notes that "leftist groupthink" has replaced objective knowledge regarding our ecosphere and atmosphere.

Coercion, corruption and condescension do not lead to informed decision making as we are now finding out with our climate alarmist neighbors. Any chance academia might resume teaching the virtues of morality, honesty, integrity, truth and transparency when instructing students about life's pernicious problems? I know, I lean to the right, but I can dream too can't I?

Hunt if you must, but there is not justication for trapping animals

To The Daily Sun,

I very much wish the state of New Hampshire would reconsider making in legal to trap bobcats.

I don't understand hunting, but if people find some satisfaction in it, so be it. But trapping just seems cruel beyond imagining, and such gratuitous sadism can't possibly be justifiable. The animal is trapped for hours and hours and possibly days in a state of excruciating pain and extreme terror.

Tell me, what crime did the bobcat commit to deserve this? Hunting kills them quick. They are not subjected to this prolonged horror. Is it for their coats that they are trapped, so the trapper can make money?

Don't we have laws to protect animals from abuse? Should our moral sensibility be suspended just because someone stands to make money? We wouldn't allow house cats to be subjected to this barbarism. Why should another cat have to endure this just because it was born in the wild?

Hunting, if you must. Trapping, no.
