The biggest problem of our lifetime

I just finished reading another misleading column from Mr. Sauer, and again wondered at his motivation to put out such hot air.

The bottom line is that there is human caused climate change and it is accelerating faster — than those scientists he so dismisses — than originally surmised.

The world has to take this seriously before we no longer have a habitable planet, and the United States is trying to do just that by attending the UN Climate Summit in Paris and working with other nations on this.

We have been polluting this planet a long time and as the leader of the industrialized world, it is our responsibility to start doing something to tackle this enormous problem, not wait until everyone “plays fair.”

Mr. Sauer can quote all the stats he wants but we know one can find any kind of expert one wants on the Internet to support whatever ideas one wants to state. It is time, Mr. Sauer, to stop getting in the way of much needed effort to tackle the biggest problem of our lifetime!
