Many thanks for running the Rich Lowry column about the Amazon rain forest. It's the first sensible article concerning the condition of the planet I've seen in your publication in a good while. The headline concerning the wildfires in the Amazon is right on. In one sentence, Lowry sums up the entire global warming/climate change hysteria, "The most fervent devotees of climate change don't really want science, no matter how often they invoke the word; they want drama and memorable images, believing they will catalyze action more than a properly modulated account of the best research."

Lowry calls the Amazon fires hysteria another faux emergency, one of many more to come, unfortunately. I hope we will see more commonsense articles like Lowry's one in the future. The Advocate's readership deserves to hear the truth about the climate.
