Misleading column on climate science - LTE San Diego Union
Re: “World turns cold on 'climate urgency' ” (Opinion, July 23):

Columnist George F. Will complains that China is slow to act on climate change, so we should do nothing? Then he feeds more misinformation to climate skeptics. His statements dupe and degrade the political will to solve this crisis.
Other countries look to us to lead the way. “Cap and trade” will not solve the problem, but it is a first step. Pricing carbon will effectively reduce CO2 emissions quickly. A revenue-neutral carbon tax will return money to taxpayers and stimulate renewable fuel technologies. Youthful clamors for action will come, but their voices are undermined by Will's disloyalty to science and to their future.
