Global Warming Is Bunk

To The Editor:

Aside from the fact that the very existence of the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is unconstitutional under the 10th Amendment, the debate is really whether or not it should be used to regulate to death what is left of our industry.

Fluctuation in the earth's climate due to variations in the sun's activity over the centuries is normal. The climate was warmer during the Middle Ages than it is now, and this was long before modern technology or hydrocarbon emissions. The hysteria of Al Gore and various rock stars and politicians over the survival risks "global warming" poses to polar bears, bees and frogs is grossly abnormal and based on junk science.

More dangerous than the 1/2-degree rise in temperature in the last 100 years, due to normal changes in solar cycles, is the growth of big government and socialism advanced by the radical environmentalists and green fanatics threatening our lives, liberty and property as we are moved toward a Brave New World of global tyranny.

Abolish the EPA now! Sincerely yours, Lawrence Burke
