Global warming can’t be denied

I urge Sarah Palin to take the same trip that I did to the U.S. Weather Bureau site on the Internet and read about some real science on the subject. Some of the facts gathered there include a .4 to .8 degree Celsius increase in worldwide temperature over the last 100 years which may increase by 1.4 to 5.8 Celsius by 2100. Other science that I thought interesting on the subject came from Ron Kwok of NASA. He determined through satellite studies that Arctic ice decreased by 14 percent from 2004 to 2005. Surely the GOP politicians can access these satellite images and see for themselves. But instead they are putting up a big fuss over the government allowing these images to be used by science. NASA research leads to the prediction that the ice will be gone by 2040. One thing is for sure. Global warming is here. Denying it won’t prevent it and only slow preparation for a possible danger to the people of this country and the world. As usual, the conservatives are a little to the right of the truth on the subject. Michael Douglas, Auburn
