The Sierra Club Mammoth Cave Group would like to recognize the Bowling Green Daily News, especially Caroline Eggers, for her outstanding reporting on environmental and related issues.

A few examples: Local home winter heating energy savings and the LIHEAP Assistance Program, the TVA's future plans on generating electric power (TVA's IRP in Bowling Green), pollution in our drinking water sources (the Gasper River fish kill) and the importance of Trees in our community (BG Big Tree Project). Many of these reports require not only objective writing and reporting skill, but extensive technical understanding and background knowledge of complex issues.

The importance of reporting news that affects our environment cannot be overemphasized, especially climate change, which poses an existential threat to our lives and future generations. We encourage the BG Daily News and its staff to continue the thorough and objective reporting of these issues.

Absolutely Positively and Enough Already = Eric Wheeler Daily News has banned this guy's letters; how about taking control of his comments?

"The importance of reporting news that affects our environment cannot be overemphasized, especially climate change, which poses an existential threat to our lives and future generations." Cue the scientifically illiterate/lazy, the Chinese hoaxers, the science community conspiracy theorist, and the job killing regulations bunch in 3,2,1...

Absolutely Positively

Ye shall not question the consensus, says those who demand that you believe that your very life is threatened by climate change. YOUR VERY LIFE.

Q.E.D.

Absolutely Positively

The interpretations drawn from the science are the basis for predictions that, for over 40 years now, have been consistently and spectacularly wrong. "According to [insert data] man's selfish abuse and misuse of our planet and her resources will lead to [insert catastrophe] by [insert date]," and the catastrophe doesn't happen. I don't doubt the science, I doubt the people. I'm willing to be convinced, but the scientists keep getting it wrong.

Enough Already

Chicken little says, Climate change poses an existential threat to our lives and future generations." He says this as if ANYONE could actually change the final results. There is nothing wrong with being concerned about the future of the climate as long as you understand you can do NOTHING about it. Prepare for if you will, l but don't fall for the lie that you can keep it from happening because it will happen with or without man. https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/09/29/earths-obliquity-and-temperature-over-the-last-20000-years/
