Climate change is more to blame for weather extremes, not abortion


Letters to the Editor

To the editor:

This is a response to Jan Tucker’s Oct. 10 letter to The Call entitled “Nations punished with weather, mass shootings because of abortion.”

I believe her letter is factually incorrect and promotes hatred between pro-life and pro-choice groups.

Climate change is caused by humans burning fossil fuels such as driving cars or flying airplanes.

This releases more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which weakens the ozone layer that protects the Earth from the sun, which leads to the melting of glaciers and rising sea levels, which is leading to some of the extreme weather we see now such as tornadoes, hurricanes and flooding.

That is why it is so important that we switch to alternative energy sources such as solar and wind, and raise fuel standards so that we can mitigate the effects of climate change.

Spewing this venom about blaming women who get abortions for all the natural disasters in the world is delusional and mean-spirited.

I strongly urge people to work together to fight climate change. It is a fight we must win.
