Six degrees of Separation

Well, no one figured out who Jack D. Gutherie was.  However, we did have an interesting exchange with one reader.  We have withheld their name--you will see why.  The oldest part of the thread is at the top, the newest at the bottom:

 

It is most disappointing that you only print response comments, in full, that agree with your point of view.  Global warming may not and probably is not totally due to our CO2 generation, but it seems foolish to me to deny any possibility that we play a role in it.  You do your credibility no favors by appearing to dismiss that possibility.

I believe I print every response I get.  Did I miss one of yours?

Jim


---

You printed only part of the first sentence.

The first sentence of what? Help me out here.

I had responded to your question regarding "opinion of environmental advocacy groups..."  The following week several were reprinted, and no. 8 was mine, "Glaciers and icebergs melting, sea levels rising,  extreme" .  That was the end of the reprinted comment.  I had gone on to say that all of these observations are to me and many others pretty good indications that global warming is happening.  Even if they are not totally caused by our production of CO2, we are unwise to simply ignore them, as I felt your comments would have us do.  I do not have my original comment on this computer, since I am traveling, but it appeared that  responses contrary to your opinions were not being reproduced.
I try to look for kernels of truth even in commentary that overall I disagree with, and all I saw in the published responses were those agreeing with you.

Attached please find a pdf of the actual zoomerang page as it exists.  I just pulled it off zoomerang.  I can't print things that are not written.

Note to all--I am still waiting for an acknowledgement of my last email above.  And we certainly all make mistakes.  But it seems like a little acknowledgement of receiving exactly what was submitted by this reader is in order here, or am I out of line?
