The big debate: Global warming

‘Climate changes, get over it. Blaming it on human progress is absurd and a scare tactic to make us dependent on a nanny state.’ – 3795

The story: Global warming is just so much hot air, conservative columnist Cal Thomas asserts.

Your take: Plenty of pot shots at Al Gore, and at Thomas, to wit: “You can’t find a bigger expert on ‘hot air’ than Cal Thomas,” andybill says. Some representative comments:

• “Aren’t global warming advocates benefiting monetarily? Al Gore certainly is.” neonbill

• “The polar ice caps are melting, glaciers are shrinking, storms are getting more severe and often catastrophic, incidences of skin cancer are skyrocketing, droughts are never-ending and crops and livestock are faltering around the world. . . . Continue to live in your cave, Cal Thomas.” rubysky

• “It gets warmer, and it gets colder for long periods and short periods. Nobody knows enough to begin to explain it.” Carl123

• “It seems that there are enough gullible people to actually believe that mankind is so incredibly powerful that we caused it all.” purson

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
