Although I read three newspapers, none has published a negative opinion about climate change until you surprised me with Mark Hendrickson’s column (“The Big Green Lie,” published May 12 in the NY print edition). I agreed with everything he wrote but was mildly disappointed that he really offered no reason why the planet is warming. Am I the only individual that believes the Sun is the only thing affecting earth’s environment?

Now, I don’t want to be accused of “doomsday” hysteria! A long time ago, when it got cold, humans called it the Ice Age! At the time, no one blamed the Sun for that either; and I assume it was still rising every morning as usual.

I’ve been waiting for over 25 years since Al Gore joined the liberal group announcing the end of the world was coming, and have yet to hear one sensible reason for the minuscule temperature change.

Fortunately, for me, I’m very old and don’t expect to be around to continue harassing the climate-change nuts!
