The new president's challenge

Nov. 27, 2000
Your editorial "Silence on global warming," (OGJ, Oct. 30, 2000, p. 21) attacks the scientific credibility of global warming.

Your editorial (OGJ, Nov. 13, 2000, p. 19) "The new President's challenge" is brilliant. I shamelessly lifted parts of it, changed a few words, and wrote a letter to the editor of my local paper.

I urge other readers to contact their local papers and electronic media. We're in the public energy education business and all can participate.

A slight majority of American agree or at least tolerate Al Gore's demonizing of "Big Oil" in the minds of half of the voters. As you said "To a riled public, all oil is Big Oil." Stay tuned.
