Failure to reduce emissions also has a cost To the editor: In reference to Heather Seavolt's letter published July 7 ("New energy bill will drain our wallets," page A4), I believe she is correct in saying energy costs will rise due to the Waxman-Markey Energy Bill. However, failure to move toward energy independence and reduced carbon dioxide emissions also has a cost. Nicolas Stern (former chief economist for the World Bank) has estimated global warming will reduce the world's economic growth by 20 percent if not addressed.

I caught myself watching the "Don't Call It a State of the Union" speech this week, and all I could think of was -- what ever happened to the War on Drugs? What was it, the late '80s when the only words that came out of any given politician's mouth were drugs, war and on. You would stop a Congress member on the street and ask for the time and he would answer "war on drugs, war on drugs, war on drugs. " So what happened? Did we win? Well, no. Drugs are as big a problem as ever, if not more so. The difference is we just stopped talking about it and eventually it went away, as a political issue, at least.

The mantra is something like "the extremes in temperature are the result of global warming.

Roscoe Bartlett, Republican: There are many people and organizations concerned about climate change. Others focus on reducing the threat to our economy and national security from dependence upon imported oil. Many worry about the impact of fossil fuels on our environment.
