universally accepted. Both works have been
exhaustively tested for decades and all tests
have confirmed the results. Yet global warming is never called a “theory,” it’s always
presented as fact and those who dare to
question any aspect of it are called deniers or
worse. There’s no question in my mind that
this issue is about politics and not science.

Wow, an editorial published in Marin County
featuring a viewpoint not shared by the majority. And the person who holds this viewpoint
was not demonized or ridiculed. Wow again.
Thank you Bill Lindqvist for having the nerve
to say it and thank you Jim Wood for having the
nerve to print it. MAURA COOK, VIA EMAIL
Jim, I really enjoyed your article about
the chat you had with the geologist from
Tiburon who had his reservations about the
human impact on climate change and global
warming. Politically and scientifically, I’m
somewhere between you and this fellow. It
showed guts and a great amount of integrity on
your part not only to interview him and print
the article, but to also acknowledge that he
made you think a second time about the issue.
Good job, and very nice article. TIM AM YX, VIA EMAIL
Celebrate the Parents
Thank you for the interview with Madeline
Levine (Conversation, March 2013). I find
her warnings about the childhood pressures
in affluent communities like Marin very
thoughtful and useful. But I also think her
constant criticism of this generation’s parenting style is sometimes overdone and harsh.
Yes, many of us are guilty of over-parenting,
but I think there are logical reasons for this
and she could show more empathy towards
us. Some of us were not parented enough
(and are now overreacting) and, for others,
the new hypercompetitive economy has left
us exhausted and without enough support.
To our credit, we are much more aware of
child sexual abuse, protecting our children
and struggling to deal with epidemic levels of ADHD and autism. We are also much
more open to encouraging our daughters as
well as our sons to find careers and be successful. Let’s celebrate all that we do well in
the center of it all!
