As global warming continues, Trump wants to burn fossil fuels with an arsonist’s glee

Global-warming deniers must understand consequences: Letter

Earth abusers, body abusers Regarding the July 31 article “As global warming heats planet, ‘weirdness abounds’” in the Orlando Sentinel: Perhaps putting the situation of Earth in the same context as the human body would make a few of the global-warming deniers realize the consequences of their beliefs and actions.
