Climate change is more than weather

first_imgThis is in response to Jim Moorhead’s Dec. 10 letter, “Enjoying less winter with global warming.”  Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Unfortunately, he seems to be a victim of disinformation and common misconceptions.He mentions contention about whether global warming is scientifically based and a result of human energy consumption. Aside from purposeful disinformation, there’s no contention among scientists about either topic anymore. This is clearly stated in the recent Climate Science Special Report by the U.S. Global Change Research Program.The other issue is the difference between weather and climate. A single warm winter doesn’t constitute climate change. Climate looks at time frames of 30 years and more.Worse than warm winters will be dry summers hurting our agriculture and more frequent extreme events like Hurricane Sandy.Ralf BuengenerBallston SpaMore from The Daily Gazette:Guilderland girls’ soccer team hands BH-BL first league lossEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

#MeToo is about assault, not romance

first_imgRe Jan. 14 letter, “Country is headed back to Puritan age”: Wow. Jim Schaefer, you really don’t understand the concept of #MeToo. It has nothing to do with romance.Sexual assault and sexual harassment are acts of violence, not love. Acknowledging the rights of victims, (women and men and children alike), to say no and be respected has nothing to do with Victoria’s Secret, mini-skirts or breast implants. Society needs to address these rights; there have to be consequences for the perpetrators. As far as your reference to “the trickery of all the gold-diggers,” yes, there are some who will lie and cheat. But we can’t dismiss the undisputed fact of countless legitimate victims because of that. Don’t worry, #MeToo doesn’t signal the demise of romance. You can still enjoy fine wine and chocolate and a cozy evening by the fireplace with someone you love.Beverly SkollSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcy Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
