U.S. media outlets do not uniformly report on our menacing climate crisis. This should be on the front page of every newspaper. Here, The New York Times has got it right, the Reading Eagle not so. “Biden pushes climate action” (Reading Eagle, Sept. 18) stresses what President Joe Biden has to say rather than, as does the Times, what the scientists are saying.
As one critic points out, “The science is screaming at us.” And the United States is one of the countries that has not pledged enough in curtailing emissions to get the job done. Climate scientists are telling us that at the rate we are going, coastal cities around the world will be uninhabitable and famines will drive mass migration later this century.
Nearly every day there is at least one letter in the Eagle criticizing the president. Do Biden’s critics have or expect to have grandchildren? Do they not want a world for their descendants to inhabit? If devastating wildfires, floods and droughts mean nothing to you, their increase surely will to the next generation.
The president needs our support in his efforts to combat climate change He does not need nit-picky letters designed to make him look like he doesn’t know what he’s doing. He does. His critics do not.
