Reader Opinion: Don't sell us short

Dear climate change believers and environmentalists, quit selling Americans short. We have the ability to thrive as humans and we can do so without destroying the earth.

Dear climate change believers and environmentalists, quit selling Americans short. We have the ability to thrive as humans and we can do so without destroying the earth.

Let's start with your precious scientists, you know the ones that make their living by proving climate change is man made-

They lied! The climate has been changing for five billion years and will continue to do so with or without humans. Sure man can do some damage but we can also fix our mistakes; the Gulf of Mexico is just fine! The better question to ask is, "Who else will save the planet from pollution if not the U.S.?" The answer is nobody else! If you look at China, India, and Russia, they have well over 50 percent of the global population and produce a larger portion of pollution. Who's going to stop them from polluting? It won't be the U.S. the way the environmentalists are shutting down our economy. Between lawsuits and environmental studies your lying scientists have driven up the cost of our raw materials to the point where we are no longer competitive in the global market. You have killed the American timber industry and stand there crying like idiots when a forest goes up in flames blaming climate change. The global population is not getting smaller, the demand for raw materials from the earth will continue to increase. We are not going to quit using fossil fuel. Wind and solar energy are not viable options.

The notion that we can't harvest these raw materials without polluting is simply an outright lie. You have shut down copper nickel mining in northern Minnesota, and more recently the Enbridge pipeline. If you kill the U.S. economy you will have lost your ridiculous war on your imaginary climate change.
