Re: “Initiative 2C, Ask a Mexican, Manitou schools, and more

When submitting a letter, one agrees for it to be edited. I'm happy they printed what they did.

Re: “Colorado Springs' turn to wake up

If 2C fails it will almost certainly be for the wrong reason (being anti-tax). If it passes it will be because of ignoring why it should fail (not taxing developers and growth). http://www.exponentialimprovement.com/cms/…

My letter above on "Different opposition" was highly edited for space and, it appears, political reasons. See it all at "Oppose 2C sales tax increase: Pay for Past Sins; Sin No More". http://www.exponentialimprovement.com/cms/…

Re: “'Fluff' news, safe and clean parks, pot and the press, and more

Mr. Carmody: They're not trying "to squash people who disagree with their ideas," rather to be treated as humans who should get the same service as everyone else, regardless of the beliefs of whoever owns the business. You've got the KKK analogy exactly backwards; the KKK also denied service to some types of humans and went to the extreme of denying those types the right to live. Christians similarly attack those who are LGBT.

Re: “'Fluff' news, safe and clean parks, pot and the press, and more

John Wark's letter of denial is one to which I also objected. Here's mine:
At current emissions rates, CO2 is released into the atmosphere nearly twice as fast as it’s removed. Our "atmospheric bathtub" is filling with CO2. We must stop and reverse this because, at current CO2 levels, more energy is absorbed from the sun than is emitted back into space. That's why the planet is warming and regional climates are changing! To prevent further warming we must cut CO2 emissions at least in half, not just halt increases. Despite flawed "common sense" thinking used by global warming deniers, global warming is an existential threat to life on earth. Billions will die, more species extinct. The physics of the system tells us that waiting for "direct, incontrovertible" proof sufficient to convince deniers is not an option. More on this: http://www.exponentialimprovement.com/cms/…

Re: “Climate change: Deal with it

John is correct about the threat from global warming. Deniers are not. I explain why in detail at "Global Warming Denial" http://www.exponentialimprovement.com/cms/…

Re: “April Fools, climate same, looking ugly, and more

John Wark's "common sense" thinking to an issue for which it does not apply because it is dynamically complex. His "thinking" and obfuscation is a threat to life on earth. Similarly, bv is confused and doesn't understand the issue.
