Warm sur­ren­der

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Re: Tony Blank­ley’s Com­men­tary piece in the April 21 edi­tion ti­tled “Bush and global warm­ing” (page 30), Pres­i­dent Bush’s con­ces­sion to global warm­ing is as dis­ap­point­ing as Newt Gin­grich's re­cent television ad with Nancy Pelosi val­i­dat­ing the same is­sue. As Mr. Blank­ley men­tions, this hurts those who have bravely risked ca­reers, es­pe­cially in me­dia and academia, to pro­vide the pub­lic with mean­ing­ful al­ter­na­tive views on the is­sue.

Iron­i­cally, 50 years from now, Democrats will likely blame the global warm­ing hoax on Big Busi­ness and, of course, Repub­li­cans. Stu­dents will be taught that the hys­te­ria was cre­ated so cor­po­ra­tions could re­place cheap and re­li­able prod­ucts with new and more ex­pen­sive items. Light bulbs and hy­brid ve­hi­cles come to mind.

I look for­ward to more Gin­grich-Pelosi “com­ing to­gether” TV spots on such sub­jects as en­sur­ing free­dom of ed­u­ca­tion, fair­ness in the me­dia, elim­i­nat­ing vot­ing fraud, re­duc­ing taxes and gov­ern­ment waste, se­cur­ing our borders, strength­en­ing our mil­i­tary and more. But Democrats won't budge an inch, while our guys give the op­po­si­tion a coun­try mile. Mike Span­iola Vail, Colorado
