READER'S VIEWS: The dangers of fossil fuels

I read with interest Michael Whatley’s article espousing the many benefits we derive from the use of fossil fuels. As informative as his article was, Mr. Whatley appeared to be totally ignorant of the downside of that use. He wrote as if he had never heard that burning fossil fuels contributes to increases in global temperatures, or that those changes in temperature are upsetting the world’s weather patterns. He seems not to know that fossil use is a significant cause of — to cite two examples — all that snow coming over from Siberia and all those stink bugs who are finding our warmer summers much to their liking. He would have us believe that the more we use fossil fuels the better off we will be.
