Wow. Four — count ’em, four — articles on climate change in one issue of The Tribune (Jan. 25). Thank you very much for bringing these vital issues to our attention.
First came the foreboding “Ice cap in Norway sliding into the sea.” Next was the excellent piece on acidification of the oceans by John Lindsey. Then there was a related article, “Maine looks to Pacific NW to learn about acidification.” Finally, the article “Senate not ready to tie climate change to mankind” showed how out of step with reality the Senate is. Want to wake up Congress and do something about the deteriorating state of the Earth’s climate? One way is to work for the passage of a revenue-neutral carbon fee. To find out how, attend a monthly meeting of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby in San Luis Obispo.
