On March 17 a letter scolding me for my sources in a letter I had written in the March 3 paper, went like this. A lady from Alexandria said: "Now we have irrefutable evidence that the Antarctic ice is melting so rapidly that a huge chunk is expected to collapse soon, raising sea levels by several feet (she lists no source). My source for the following is "Climate Change, the Facts" by Dr. John Abbott and others. "Chris Turney of the NSW Climate Change Research Centre in 2013 led an expedition to Antarctica claiming 'Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change..." Turneys expedition got trapped in sea ice and it took one of the largest ice breakers to finally free them. NASA says sea ice cover in Antarctica has grown 1.5 percent a decade for several decades.

In that same paper a gentleman from Baxter stated that the smoking gun has been found that ties the Koch Brothers to a scientific paper prepared by a scientist who doubts man made warming. The Koch Brothers have spent approximately $67 million to debunk global warming, which is their right to do. What is wrong, however, is the billion dollars a day that is spent by government entities trying to prove that man-made global warming exists and will have catastrophic results unless we spend trillions of dollars in a vain attempt to change the weather.

Climate Science Professor Judith Curry told the U. S. Congress this year "For the past 16 years, there has been no significant increase in surface temperature. ... The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) does not have a convincing or confident explanation for the hiatus in warming."
