Letter: Human-caused climate change concept's widely accepted, he says
TO THE EDITOR: Glad to help you with your latest problem, Sanjeev. When you copy drivel from one of your climate change denier websites and foist it off on the Ellsworth public, that doesn't qualify as "science." It is just more drivel from a denier website, masquerading as science. Perhaps...

Letter: Global warming hysteria's based on faulty models, he says
TO THE EDITOR: Ron (Blatherer) Zaudke needs to educate himself on the issues instead of blathering about them, he would stop being duped by snake oil salesmen peddling their wares to steal his money. Global warming hysteria is based on climate computer models that don't work. If...

Letter: Scientists, groups de-bunked warming deniers' claims, he says
TO THE EDITOR: Get a grip there, Sanjeev. Your little chart from some denier website has already been de-bunked by dozens of actual scientists and scientific organizations, as opposed to the political propagandists who inhabit your right-wing echo chamber. A nice summary is available...

Letter: E-mails stolen, so aren't credible is fallacy, he says
TO THE EDITOR: Mr. Zaudke's straw man fallacy is at work again: The e-mails were stolen, so they are not credible. A small but a notable group of global warming scientists are altering data and hiding their work, but that has no bearing on anything. Zaudke never divulges any information...

Letter: 'Warmers' have no answer to those annoying facts, he says
TO THE EDITOR: According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Snow and Ice Data Center, the Antarctic has 90 percent of the world's sea ice and had the most ice ever recorded at the end of 2008. Also according to NASA, the warmest years in the United...

Letter: Free at last from global warming nonsense, he says
TO THE EDITOR: Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last. With all due respect to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we are finally free from all the global warming nonsense. The global warming fraud ended on Nov.

He shares Canadian astronaut's perspective on the Earth
TO THE EDITOR: At last, one of the global warming proponents acknowledges that information distilled from climate research papers I am reading is a factoid. Of course, he hasn't offered one so far. If he does offer a "factoid," it may be that debunked hockey stick graph by Mann,...

Second coldest July since 1873, he says

Writer on Earth's age, temperature is making progress, he says
TO THE EDITOR: It seems as if some local letter writers who represent the political right are gaining knowledge. We had one letter writer who accepted the fact that the Earth is at least 10,000 years old. This is a big improvement from when he told us the Earth is only 6,000 years...

They need course in science, not science fiction, he says
TO THE EDITOR: "Some people will do anything to save the Earth, except take a science course." -- Patrick Jake O'Rourke. Everything depends on how an issue is framed; the issue of global warming has been framed by a single question: Does the carbon dioxide emitted by industrialized...

Be skeptical of global warming deniers, he says TO THE EDITOR: Sorry, but a series of factoids gleaned from global-warming denier websites is not going to change the fact that the vast majority of the world's real scientists (and governments) are in agreement that the earth's climate...

He lists reasons to be skeptical of Kyoto claims

He rebuts climate change denier
TO THE EDITOR: The penultimate argument of failed logic resorts to name calling. The ultimate proof of failed logic is often referred to as Godwin's theory. This involves comparing the opposite view to Nazis or Hitler. Mr. Pazdernik's argument against global warming has reached...

There's a hoax all right, he says
TO THE EDITOR: It is certainly true that, among scientists educated at the Rush Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies (which of course doesn't really exist), global warming is a documented scam/hoax. Likewise, over at Rupert Murdoch's Fox Fake News, prize-winning junk-scientists...
