This letter is in response to Mr. Bill Pitts’ comments about third world countries. It almost sounds like he read my mind, so I won’t repeat what he said here. However, I do have a couple of additional points.
First, James Brodell, the editor of A.M. Costa Rica, has expressed concern about sea level rises from global warming. I share his concern. Secondly, A.M. Costa Rica has acknowledged that a growing number of respected scientists are doubting the impact of humans on this process. Again I agree. Finally with respect to deluges we’re suffering here and in Cambodia, I remember the TV coverage of the drawn-out Vietnam War showing never ending monsoons and flooding. Here in Costa Rica what they call the “temporal” or non-stop rain for several weeks in October/November was the norm each year when I first arrived in 1988, not the exception.
For Costa Rica to join the chorus of third world beggars, justifying it all with manmade global warming is a disgrace.
