Dear editor,

I find it rather amusing when somebody like John Martin states that, “Some people will never face reality,” then goes on to stand on his little high horse and lecture us about how we are making the globe unable to support human civilization.

Isn’t this rather a case of the pot calling the kettle black?

I agree that there is a swing towards global warming but the globe has been swinging back and forth from warm to cold for millennia without man’s help, and with more than 200 volcanoes worldwide daily pouring many, many tons of carbon and other noxious substances into the atmosphere which haven’t destroyed the ability of the globe to support civilization, then I doubt mans puny efforts with his motorcars etc. will have little effect towards it.

All we can hope is that the swing will not be too violent. In fact one Russian scientist has already forecast that we will soon be heading back to a cooling trend which could last for up to 300 years.

The more I hear of our mayor, the more I like him.

John Butler,

Courtenay
