“The Apocalypse” letter, published in the Pilot on Sept. 2, was well done. The climate related problems the author mentioned were substantial but I'm sure the he would have added many more had space allowed. He didn't mention melting glaciers in both poles and Greenland. Also, the climate caused warming, rising, and acidification of oceans. But most importantly he left out the thousands killed and millions without food or water due to climate exacerbated storms. This last group will add to the increasing number of migrants.

The new Inflation Reduction Act provides $370 billion to be spent on climate change. This gives the impression that something in the future will control Global Warming. The greenhouse gasses (GHG) (primarily Carbon Dioxide and Methane) in our atmosphere are the culprits. But the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) points out that warming will continue to grow past the Point that all anthropogenic emissions stop.
