As a trained weather observer/recorder by the Navy from 1951-55, I have observed many weather changes. Living in upstate New York for 50-plus years, the climate appears to have gotten milder. But to conclude that this change is man-made is questionable.

As a TV show used to say, “give me the facts, and only the facts." Yet, we have none, and only an observation. Google Al Gore's climate change and you will discover after 12 years, none of his predictions have come true except he has become richer than he was as our vice president. He, like many of our Hollywood actors, have planes, cars, homes and live the high life but tell us to scrimp.

How does anyone blame 1816, the year with out a summer, as man-made? Type in 1816 and read for yourself what transpired. Or 10,000 years ago New Orleans did not exists because it was covered by the ocean. What happened to the water for it to disappear?

How does one stop the sun's solar cycles, which scientists tell us it effects our earth's climate?

The opinion page on Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, was very misleading as it implies Florida will be hurt by inaction on climate change. Where is the proof that man is causing the sea to rise? Did man cause the water to rise and cover New Orleans 10,000 years ago?

To rely on the federal government's report on climate change when it's clearly favors it keeping the money flowing is like relying on Al Gore's failed report. You can fool us once but not a second time.
